MACOM Announces New Products for 600Gbps and 800Gbps Optical Networking Applications

MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. has announced the availability of its new dual channel 96 GBaud transimpedance amplifier (TIA) and quad-channel modulator driver for coherent optical networking applications, the company said.

Increased demand for data capacity in metro and Data Center Interconnect (DCI) applications is driven by new trends like the Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous vehicles, virtual reality and artificial intelligence. As the market demand moves to higher data rates for lower overall cost-per-bit, coherent optical systems are operating at higher symbol rates and with more complex modulation schemes to support data rates of 800Gbps and higher on a single wavelength.

This move to higher data rates drives the need for modulator drivers and TIAs with ever increasing levels of performance. MACOM´s new dual-channel TIA MATA-009806 and quad-channel driver MAOM-009408 offer customers the high bandwidth, low noise and low power consumption to enable Integrated Coherent Receivers (ICRs), High Bandwidth Coherent Driver Modulators (HB-CDMs) and Integrated Coherent Transmit-Receive Optical Sub-Assemblies (ICTROSAs) operating at up to 800Gbps in Telecom and DCI applications.

MACOM designs and manufactures semiconductor products for Data Center, Telecommunication and Industrial and Defense applications. Headquartered in Lowell, Massachusetts, MACOM has design centers and sales offices throughout North America, Europe and Asia. MACOM is certified to the ISO9001 international quality standard and ISO14001 environmental management standard.
