MACOM demos latest products for 5G and data-center applications at CIOE

In booth #6B71 at the China International Optoelectronic Exposition (CIOE 2021) in the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center (16-18 September), MACOM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes semiconductors, components and subassemblies for analog RF, microwave, millimeter-wave and photonic applications) is showcasing its optoelectronic and photonic components with demonstrations featuring new product additions to its broad portfolio. These include:

112Gbps TIA family for DR and FR single-mode applications

MACOM is demonstrating a Gold Box evaluation board that includes its 4x100Gbps MATA-03819 transimpedance amplifier (TIA) and its BSP56 photodetector (PD). The display highlights the MATA-03819 TIA’s bit-error-performance.

10Gbps components for PON applications

MACOM is demonstrating its latest 10Gbps passive optical network (PON) component solution for XGPON and XGSPON spanning its portfolio of TIAs, drivers, photodiodes and lasers. The firm is highlighting the MALD-02186 multi-PON combo chip (OLT), MALD-02188 XGPON combo chip (OLT), MALD-02183 XGPON combo chip (ONU), MALD-02181 XGSPON combo chip (ONU), MATA-02239 10Gbps BM TIA (OLT), MATA-02240 10Gbps TIA (ONU), MAOD-127D02IL1T0 – XGPON laser, MAOD-127D10I-LCT0 – XGSPON laser, MARP-FSAPD10A PD (ONU) and MARP-FSAPD10B/ 32445-02 PD (OLT).

200Gbps and 400Gbps chip-set for SR multimode applications

MACOM is demonstrating a two-chip analog solution for short-reach 200Gbps QSFP and 400Gbps OSFP, as well as QSFP-DD modules and AOC data-center applications. The first chip is a 4x53Gbps PAM-4 CDR and TIA, and the second is a 4x53 Gbps PAM-4 CDR and VCSEL driver. The chip-set demonstrates IEEE standard compliant bit-error rate (BER) performance and Open Eye MSA transmit eye compliance, while displaying interoperability with an Ethernet switch.

50Gbps reference design for 5G wireless mid-haul applications

MACOM is demonstrating its 50Gbps reference design for 5G wireless mid-haul applications, featuring a complete 50Gbps PAM-4 QSFP28 reference design, using all-MACOM components. The demo platform is a 20km optical link with single-mode fiber using a 1310nm wavelength. The reference design showcases MACOM’s new PRISM-50D DSP with integrated DML driver, a 26GBaud 1310 I-temp laser, a 26GBaud PIN photodiode, and a 26GBaud PAM-4 TIA.
