M/A-COM introduces MAOM-003404 quad-channel differential modulator driver

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings Inc of Lowell, MA, USA, which makes semiconductors, components and subassemblies for RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications, has introduced the MAOM-003404, a quad-channel 32Gbps differential modulator driver IC for 100G coherent transponders in CFP and CFP2 form factors.

MAOM-003404 meets CFP2 input voltage requirements, while the output voltage can drive the majority of available optical modulators requiring differential drive. The high-performance driver boasts market-leading power consumption, low RMS jitter, and typical rise/fall times of 12ps, says the firm. The four channels are packaged in a single 14mm x 8mm surface-mount package which is optimized for maximum isolation and minimum crosstalk between channels.

“We are very excited to introduce this market leading product which will enable the next phase of 100G growth,” says Optoelectronics product line manager Ray Moroney. “Pluggable form factors are critical to the economics of 100G for metro applications, and MACOM has worked closely with its customers and partners to provide a driver solution which meets the stringent power and size requirements.”
