As demand for 100G connectivity progresses to 200G and on to 400G, optical module suppliers are looking to enable Cloud Data Centers and high-performance computing (HPC) clusters with optical connectivity solutions delivered in a small form factor and consuming low power at low cost. MACOM's fully analog chipset solution, featuring the MALD-38435 driver and MATA-38434 TIA along with MACOM's existing MASC-38040 and MAOM-38051/38053 CDR devices, offers customers that optimal high-performance, low power and low cost combination. By utilizing fully analog circuitry as opposed to digital signal processing, MACOM's solution delivers best in class low latency, especially critical for high performance computing applications.
The MALD-38435 driver and MATA-38434 devices are offered as a die-level
solution with 250um channel spacing, optimal for direct wire-bonding to
VCSEL lasers and photodetectors. The devices feature individual channel
programmability control via an I2C interface for flexible management by
the module's local microcontroller. The devices feature low power and a
small die size enabling implementations in QSFP and QSFP-DD modules. The
devices' low jitter performance enables low bit error rate (BER) of
1E-15 with an
"MACOM is excited to follow our successful 100Gbps chipset for short
reach applications with the new generation of devices targeted for
400Gbps QSFP-DD and OSFP modules," said
MACOM will demonstrate the new chipset solution at OFC 2018 with a QSFP-DD module from Dust Photonics.
"We are pleased to demonstrate the industry's leading 400G QSFP-DD-SR8 short reach module utilizing MACOM's chipset," said Ben Rubovitch, CEO of Dust Photonics. "MACOM's fully interoperable solution and great technical support reduced our time to market. We look forward to expanding our portfolio to additional optical modules and AOC applications."
MACOM will showcase a complete portfolio of PMDs for optical modules at
OFC 2018, Booth #2613,
