MACOM Introduces Family of High Performance Transimpedence Amplifiers for 100G Optical Module Applications

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high performance analog RF, microwave, millimeter wave and optical products, today announced the company's latest family of high-performance, ultra-low power 4x28G TIAs which support data rates from 10.3Gbps to 28Gbps. The devices consume ultra-low power dissipation from a 3.3V supply and deliver the best in class sensitivity in a small bare die layout, making them ideal for high-density optical module applications. They are offered in four different versions including the discrete channel M03002 and array channel of M03100, M03101 and M03102 with input pitch sizes of 250um, 500um, and 750um respectively, offering flexibility for various optical modules and optical interconnect applications.

These additions to the MACOM TIA product line compliment the company's growing 100G product portfolio, which consists of the industry’s lowest power 4x28G laser driver and Clock and Data Recovery devices (CDRs). The new TIAs improve optical sensitivity and dynamic range while adding key features such as individual photodiode average receive current indicator and on-chip decoupling capacitors that reduce the overall cost of optical subassemblies.

"The TIA solution offered by MACOM is a critical component enabling low module power dissipation in next generation 100G modules," comments Sheng Zhang, Chief Scientist at Source Photonics. "By combining Source Photonics advanced optics with MACOM high performance TIA solutions, we will be able to address the demanding 100G module requirements."

The M03002, M03100, M03101 and M03102 devices can be used in conjunction with the M37040 and M37046 4x28G receive CDRs to form a complete ultra-low power 100G module receiver chipset solutions. “We continue to expand our optical PMD product offering as a trusted source for 100G CFP2, CFP4 and QSFP modules," said Angus Lai, Product Marketing Director, High Performance Analog at MACOM. "Our newest family of TIAs offers superior sensitivity and ultra-low power dissipation. Along with our highly integrated 4x28G CDRs, they enable the best in class 100G module solutions."

MACOM will be highlighting the new TIAs alongside established physical media device (PMD) solutions that are now part of its portfolio following the company's acquisition of Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. earlier this year. 100G module chipset solutions and live demonstrations are planned in MACOM's demonstration room (#631) at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC 2014), March 11 -13, 2014 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
