MACOM launches quad-channel linear driver for 28Gbaud PAM-4 applications to support 200G and 400G transceiver development

MACOM Technology Solutions Holdings Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes semiconductors, components and subassemblies for analog RF, microwave, millimeter-wave and photonic applications) has launched the MAOM-003419, a quad-channel linear electro-absorptive modulated laser (EML) driver for 28 Gbaud PAM-4 solutions for 200G and 400G. Samples are now available.

The MAOM-003419 is a low-power EML driver with high gain, high bandwidth and output voltage capability up to 2Vpp while it consumes less than 500mW of power. The device has differential inputs to provide common-mode rejection and single-ended output to drive industry-standard EMLs. The device is available in a small-form-factor surface-mount package while also integrating the high-frequency bias T for the electro-absorptive (EA) modulator.

"The MAOM-003419 is an ideal solution for customers developing EML-based PAM-4 transceivers," says Raymond Moroney, director of product marketing, High Performance Analog, at MACOM. "MACOM has achieved excellent performance with our PAM-4 chipset IP, and we believe this product is a great addition to enabling the next generation of 200G and 400G optical connectivity for enterprise and datacenter applications."
