M/A-COM Technology introduces modulator drivers for 100G applications

At the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC 2012) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (17-19 September), M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes analog semiconductors, components and subassemblies for RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications) has introduced two new modulator drivers for 100G Ethernet applications.

Packaged in a 4.7mm x 6.5mm SMD package, MAOM-002108 is a high performance MZ modulator driver operating up to 28 Gbps. The driver IC has a very low power consumption of 1.3W at 6.0Vpp output, low RMS jitter, and a typical rise and fall time of 11ps.

MAOM-002204 is a high performance quad-channel electro-absorption modulator driver IC for 100GigE (25Gbps x 4) applications. Available in a 14mm x 8mm package, each port of the MAOM-002204 is driven with differential input signal that can range from 250mVpp to 500mVpp to provide an output that can be controlled from 1.0Vpp to 2.5 Vpp for each channel. The modulator driver exhibits very low power consumption of 0.75W per channel at 2.5Vpp, low RMS jitter, and a typical rise and fall time of 12.5ps.

"These products demonstrate M/A-COM Tech’s commitment to becoming the leading supplier of modulator drivers to serve all client and line side 100G applications, said Vivek Rajgarhia, general manager of M/A-COM Tech’s Optoelectronics business unit.

Production quantities and samples of both products are available from stock.
