MACOM debuts 46Gbps quad-channel linear modulator driver for 400G long-haul applications

In booth #1947 at the Optical Fiber Communication conference & exposition (OFC 2015) in Los Angeles (24-26 March), M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes semiconductors, components and subassemblies for analog RF, microwave, millimeter-wave and photonic applications) has launched the wideband MAOM-003418 quad-channel linear modulator driver with 46Gbaud capability to support 200G and 400G ultra-long-haul applications. MACOM says that this latest addition to its portfolio of drivers for optical infrastructure enables system designers to address the growing demand for higher data rates and greater bandwidth in the long-haul network.

The MAOM-003418 integrates four linear driver channels in a high-performance package with differential surface-mount inputs and single-ended GPPO outputs for direct connection to an OIF-compliant LiNbO (lithium niobate) modulator. MACOM says that the device is distinguished by its wide bandwidth, low power dissipation and linearity, which supports the implementation of higher-order modulation schemes that enable 400G data rates.

"MACOM's technology leadership in modulator drivers for 100G has set a strong foundation for 400G innovation," claims Ray Moroney, marketing director for optoelectronics.

The MAOM-003418 modulator driver is currently sampling to customers.
