LOWELL, Mass. — Macom Technology Solutions Inc. has announced the MALD-37345 quad 28-G VCSEL driver with input equalizer and the MATA-37344 quad 28-G transimpedance amplifiers.
The solutions are targeted for short-reach, VCSEL-based 1000-Gbps onboard optics, as well as optical modules and active optical cable applications. The new chipset eliminates the need for clock data recovery with backward pin compatibility with the MALD-37045 and MATA-37044 devices,giving customers the ability to mix and match parts.
The VCSEL driver of the MALD-37345 includes programmable eye-shaping features and an input equalizer. The high-sensitivity transimpedance amplifier of the MATA-37344 features selectable bandwidth to support up to 28.05 Gbps and lower speed legacy data rates, as well as an output driver with programmable output swing and 2-tap de-emphasis. Both devices are available in 2 x 3-mm die form, supplied in waffle packs, whole wafers or quartered wafers.
