M/A-COM Tech showcasing integrated modulator drivers for 100G DP-QPSK applications

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes semiconductors, components, and subassemblies for RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications) is showcasing its expanded Optomai optoelectronics product line in booth 1816 at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC 2011) in Geneva, Switzerland (19–21 September).

Two new modulator driver amplifiers for 100G DP-QPSK applications are now available in small-form-factor packages. The MAOM-003104 is a quad-channel driver in a 25mm x 40mm x 6.5mm package with GPPO connectors. The MAOM-003106 is a dual-channel driver in a 10mm x 10mm x 2.3mm surface-mount package. Both devices have ultra-low jitter, says the firm, as well as output voltage up to 8Vpp and gain of more than 30dB. Rise and fall times are better than 11ps, with data rates up to 32Gbps.

M/A-COM Tech offers an extensive portfolio of modulator drivers and transimpedance amplifiers (TIA) for high-speed optical communications. The optoelectronics products for 10, 40 and 100Gb/s have been developed using the firm's proprietary IC design. The packaging technology offers high-performance solutions with small size and low cost. The drivers and TIAs are compatible with industry-leading optical modulators and photodiodes, and have been developed to comply with industry standards as stated by the OIF, IEEE, and industry multi-source agreements (MSAs).

M/A-COM Tech offers Optomai products for both line-side and client-side applications, including:

  • electro-absorption modulated laser (EML) drivers for 10G, 28G and 40G; 
  • indium phosphide Mach–Zehnder (MZ) drivers for 10G and 22.3G;
  • lithium niobate MZ drivers for 10G, 22.3G and 32G; and
  • single- and dual-channel TIAs for 10G, 22.3G, 28G and 32G.
