MACOM's 100G Single Lambda Solution leverages the company's 53 Gbaud PAM-4 technology to deliver 100G throughput over a single wavelength. 100G Single Lambda is an approach that has been endorsed by the IEEE that can dramatically reduce the number and cost of optical components typically housed in an optical transceiver module. 100G single lambda is implemented in QSFP optical modules enabling plug and play compatibility with existing systems, thereby accelerating customers' field deployment of the technology, and bypassing the need for switches and routers to be developed before they can deploy their end solutions in volume.

"The breadth of MACOM's analog, optical and photonic technology
portfolio, combined with our deep domain expertise and Cloud-scale
manufacturing capability, position us as the clear industry leader in
100G-enabling components on the pathway to 200G, 400G, and 800G
Leveraging an advanced 16 nanometer FinFET process node, the MACOM PRISM™ Mixed Signal PHY that underpins the 100G Single Lambda Solution is a generation ahead of competing PHYs developed at larger, planar geometries. Designed for 53Gbaud PAM-4 operation with integrated linear laser driver, forward error correction and a flexible DSP based equalizer, the MACOM PRISM™ enables ease of integration, delivering Cloud-scale economics and cost structures.
MACOM's PRISM is complemented by MACOM's silicon photonics based optics consisting of a laser integrated with a PIC chip, that leverages the company's patented Etched Facet Technology (EFT). This highly integrated photonic solution drives additional cost optimization, enabling Cloud-scale manufacturing capabilities for our customers.
"Cloud Data Centers have moved quickly to deploy first generation 100G
modules, but insatiable Data demands, unrelenting cost pressures and
compressing upgrade cycles require a new generation of modules that
enable Data Centers to eliminate capacity, throughput and cost
