MACOM Announces Industry’s First Single-Chip Solution for 100G Bidirectional Optical Connectivity
- New MALD-37845 integrates CDRs, TIAs and VCSEL drivers in a single, low cost chip
- Full TX/RX solution is targeted for short reach 100G optical modules, AOCs and on-board optics
- MALD-37845 will be showcased at CIOE in Booth #1A32, and ECOC in Booth #579
- MALD-37845 is sampling to customers today
Supporting a full range of data rates from 24.3 to 28.1 Gbps, the new MALD-37845 is designed for use in CPRI, 100G Ethernet, 32G Fibre Channel and 100G EDR InfiniBand applications, and will provide customers with a low power, single-chip solution ideally suited for small form-factor optical subassemblies. The MALD-37845 supports interoperability with a variety of VCSEL lasers and photodetectors, and is firmware-compatible with earlier-generation MACOM solutions.
“Optical module and AOC providers are under tremendous pressure to
enable their customers with 100G connectivity at volume scale,” said
MACOM’s MALD-37845 100G single-chip solutions are sampling to customers today, with production availability planned for the first half of 2019.
