MACOM Announces Industry’s First Four Channel CDR with Integrated High Output Voltage EML Driver for 100G Optical Modules

Lowest Power CDR Solution is ideal for CFP4 and QSFP28 Applications

LOWELL, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 1, 2014 — M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, millimeter wave and optical products, today announced the newest addition to its portfolio of clock data recovery (CDR) devices and modulator drivers for 100 Gbps optical module applications.

The MAOM-37051A is a four channel 28Gbps CDR with integrated electro-absorption modulated laser (EML) driver which can deliver up to 2.5Vpp single-ended output. The part integrates MACOM’s high performance CDR technology with its market leading EML drivers in a small form factor surface mount package to provide the lowest power solution available for CFP4 and QSFP28 transceivers. A live demonstration of the product will be on display at CIOE 2014 in Shenzhen, September 2nd, 2014.

The next generation of pluggable modules for 100G in CFP4 and QSPF28 form factors require drastic reductions in the size and power consumption of components. MACOM’s MAOM-37051A meets these stringent performance requirements for the transmitter and when combined with MACOM’s M37046 Receiver CDR and M03100 TIA devices, provides the lowest power complete chip-set solution for 100G modules.

“This is another great example of MACOM leading the way with new levels of performance and integration,” said Stefano D’Agostino, Distinguished Fellow of Technology at MACOM. “Working very closely with our customers and understanding their needs, this product along with our receiver chip-set enables the lowest power solution for the next generation of pluggable 100G modules”.

Samples of MAOM-37051A are available today. Please visit booth 1B73 at CIOE or for more information.
