MACOM launches first surface-mount modulator driver for 46 Gbaud applications

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-003427, a quad-channel linear modulator driver with 46 Gbaud capability to support next-generation 200G and 400G applications. This latest addition to MACOM's portfolio of drivers for optical infrastructure enables system designers to address higher-baud-rate applications with lower-cost surface-mount technology.

MACOM introduction what were claimed to be the industry's first quad-channel surface-mount drivers in 2013. To date, surface-mount packaging has been used extensively in 100G and 200G systems operating at 32 Gbaud while higher-baud-rate systems have required more expensive 'gold box'-style packages. The MAOM-003427 instead offers equivalent performance in a surface-mount package, enabling lower-cost and smaller-form-factor solutions.

The MAOM-003427 has wide bandwidth, low power dissipation and linearity that supports the implementation of higher-order modulation schemes at baud rates up to 46 Gbaud. The driver is pin-compatible with MACOM's existing 32Gbaud surface-mount solutions (MAOM-003405 and MAOM-003407), offering designers an easy upgrade path.

The MAOM-003427 modulator driver is sampling to customers now. MACOM is also present at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC 2015) in Meeting Room M8 at the Feria Valencia in Spain (28-30 September).
