MACOM expands 5G optical connectivity portfolio

MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. has announced the sampling and pre-production of the new 28Gbps transimpedance amplifiers (TIA), including the MATA-03003 and MATA-03006 devices, the company said.

This high-performance TIA solution supports data rates from 8.5 Gbps to 28 Gbps for 25G CPRI, 25G Ethernet and 32G Fibre Channel applications while featuring low power, high sensitivity/overload, reduced die size and flexibility in optical sub-assembly (OSA) for SFP28 optical modules.

Driven by 5G connectivity, data traffic demand is growing rapidly in wireless, enterprise and Cloud Data Center applications. Optical module customers are continually looking for ways to deliver lower power, smaller size and lower cost solutions. MACOM´s new TIA devices offer a 20% power reduction, while providing improved sensitivity and extended overload performance, enabling the TIAs to be cost effective and ideal in high density optical connectivity solutions. MACOM´s new TIA solution reduces the need for external components, streamlining hermetic To-header or chip-on-board (COB) assembly.

MACOM enables a better-connected and safer world by delivering breakthrough semiconductor technologies for optical, wireless and satellite networks that satisfy society´s insatiable demand for information.

MACOM is the partner of choice to the world´s communications infrastructure, aerospace and defense companies, helping solve their most complex challenges in areas including network capacity, signal coverage, energy efficiency and field reliability, through its best-in-class team and broad portfolio of analog RF, microwave, millimeterwave and photonic semiconductor products.
