MACOM launches first four-channel CDR with integrated high-output-voltage EML driver for 100G modules

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes analog semiconductors, components and subassemblies for analog, RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications) has launched the newest addition to its portfolio of clock & data recovery (CDR) devices and modulator drivers for 100Gbps optical module applications.

The MAOM-37051A is a four-channel 28Gbps CDR with integrated electro-absorption modulated laser (EML) driver that can deliver up to 2.5Vpp single-ended output. The device integrates MACOM’s CDR technology with its EML drivers in a small-form-factor surface-mount package to provide what is claimed to be the lowest-power solution available for CFP4 and QSFP28 transceivers. MACOM is giving a live demonstration of the product in booth # 1B73 at the China International Optoelectronic Exposition (CIOE 2014) at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center (2-5 September).

The next generation of pluggable modules for 100G in CFP4 and QSPF28 form factors requires drastic reductions in the size and power consumption of components. MACOM says that its MAOM-37051A meets these stringent performance requirements for the transmitter and, when combined with its M37046 Receiver CDR and M03100 TIA devices, provides the lowest-power complete chip-set solution for 100G modules.

“Working very closely with our customers and understanding their needs, this product - along with our receiver chip-set - enables the lowest-power solution for the next generation of pluggable 100G modules,” claims Stefano D’Agostino, Distinguished Fellow of Technology at MACOM.

Samples of the MAOM-37051A are available now.
