MACOM First Single-chip Solution For 100g Bidirectional Optical Connectivity

News
MACOM, a supplier of high-performance RF, microwave, millimeterwave and photonic solutions, has announced the industry's first integrated, single-chip transmit and receive solution for short reach 100G optical transceivers, active optical cables (AOCs) and onboard optical engines. The seamless integration of four-channel Transmit and Receive Clock Data Recovery (CDRs), four Transimpedance Amplifiers (TIAs) and four Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VSCEL) drivers within the new MALD-37845 will afford customers unrivaled ease of use and reduced costs.


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 Marek Tlalka, Senior Director of Marketing, High-Performance Analog, MACOM. "We believe that the MALD-37845 overcomes the integration and cost challenges inherent to legacy multi-chip offerings, providing an elegant, high-performance solution for short reach 100G applications."


MACOM's MALD-37845 100G single-chip solutions are sampling to customers today, with production availability planned for the first half of 2019.
