MACOM Products Enable Next Generation 5G and Data Center Networks

MACOM Technology Solutions Inc., a supplier of semiconductor solutions, has announced the availability of its 25G Avalanche Photodiode (APD) and 25G Fabry-Perot (FP) Laser optical components for 5G Wireless and Datacenter applications, the company said.

The APD28A is a back-illuminated 25G APD covering both O- and C-Bands with a usable wavelength range of 1250nm to 1650nm. The Photodiode features greater than 20GHz (3dB) bandwidth, with very high sensitivity of -22dBm when coupled to a low noise amplifier for transmission applications.

The device performance enables customers to design optical sub-assemblies and transceivers suitable for 5G wireless mid-haul and long-haul networks, and extended reach (ER4) applications for 100Gbps, 200Gbps and 400Gbps Data Center applications.

MACOM will offer the 25G APD as bare die and a chip-on-carrier format to provide maximum design flexibility to customers.

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.
