Macom Announces Datacentre Chipset
Macom Technology has announced a chipset for CWDM (coarse WDM) and PSM4 (parallel single mode) applications in the datacentre. The chipset includes the complete lineup of electronic and optical chips to achieve the lowest power consumption in a QSFP28 form factor.
As new mega-datacentres continue to expand to service the demand for high-speed data communications, the volume of 100G transceivers is expected to grow exponentially with the parallel need for lower power, smaller size and lower cost components. Macom has consolidated the high-speed semiconductor content in 100G transceivers and now offers a complete solution including lasers, drivers, clock data recovery (CDR), and transimpedance amplifiers (TIAs) - optimised to provide differentiated performance, power, size and cost benefits.
Macom's M37046 and M37049 are said to be the lowest power and smallest quad channel receive and transmit CDRs with market leading performance. The MAOM-002301 and MAOM-002304 are single and quad-channel direct modulated laser (DML) drivers that offer the lowest power solution in the market.
In addition, Macom's 127/129/131/133D-25C-LCG11 family of distributed feedback (DFB) lasers covers CWDM and PSM4 wavelengths, offering high-performance over broad operating temperature range. The M03002 and M03102 are single and quad-channel TIAs offering the industry's lowest noise and power consumption for 28G applications.
"This chipset demonstrates the value which Macom brings to our end customers and the industry as a whole," said Vivek Rajgarhia, VP of Strategy, Networks. "By providing the complete solution in a neat bundle, we can provide cost and power efficiency benefits which solve our customers' high speed networking challenges."
