MACOM launches ultra-high-sensitivity TIA for GPON optical network units

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 M02027 next-generation high-performance transimpedance amplifier (TIA) targeted for GPON optical network unit (ONU) equipment.

The M02027 enables Gigabit passive optical network (GPON) receivers to utilize lower-cost PIN photodiodes while offering performance margin in the stringent GPON BOSA-on-board environment. MACOM says that the device delivers ultra high sensitivity with PIN photodiodes and wide dynamic operating range while offering best-in-class power dissipation.

The M02027 is targeted at GPON ONU, SONET, CPRI base-station and SFF/SFP module applications. It supports multi-data rates between 100Mbps to 3.125Gbps with wire bonding flexibility and a single supply of 3.3V. It provides an output data polarity invert function and output average photodiode current for photo-alignment and receiver signal strength indicator (RSSI) average power monitoring.

The new addition to the TIA product line complements MACOM's comprehensive PON product portfolio, which already includes high-performance laser diodes and highly integrated laser drivers with digital monitoring and dual-closed-loop operation for complete PON solutions.

"The new GPON ONU TIA offers superior optical sensitivity and overload performance with low-cost PIN photodiode at best-in-class power dissipation," claims Angus Lai, director of product marketing, High-Performance Analog. "We believe the M02027 offers a competitive cost-performance ratio and enables our customers to tackle fast-growing GPON deployments." 

The M02027 is in mass production now and available as bare die in waffle pack and wafer on grip frame. It is being shown in private demonstrations in booth #1B83 at the 17th China International Optoelectronic Expo (CIOE 2015) in Shenzhen, China (31 August-3 September).
