MACOM Expands Transimpedance Amplifier Portfolio to Cover 100G to 800G Applications

Linear 53 GBaud PAM-4 MATA-05817 TIA provides industry-leading low noise performance while supporting bandwidths up to 35 GHz

Quad Linear 53 Gbaud MATA-38134 with 500um pitch for QSFP-DD applications up to 800Gbps

TIA supports wire bonding and flip-chip assembly flexibility

Lowell, MA, March 10, 2020 – MACOM Technology Solutions, Inc. (MACOM), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions, today announced the introduction of two new transimpedance amplifiers (TIAs), both for optical networking applications Optimized for coverage from 100Gbps DR1 to 800Gbps DR8 and FR8. The new TIA is now available in flip-chip and wire-bond packaging options for fast and flexible deployment in QSFP, QSFP-DD and OSFP optical modules.

Given the industry trend toward single-channel 100G and multi-channel 200G, 400G, and 800G connectivity, there is a growing need for high-performance, energy-efficient optical components to maximize bandwidth density in cloud data centers. MACOM’s expanded TIA family, paired with seamlessly interoperable MACOM components, our comprehensive portfolio will help customers accelerate this transition.

The MATA-05817 features low noise performance below 2 uA RMS (typ) and supports bandwidths up to 35 GHz. TIA supports high-throughput optical data links in a very low-power configuration, ideal for high-density optical data center interconnects. The device is suitable for 50G, 100G, 200G and 400G receivers using multilevel modulation such as PAM4.

The MATA-38134 is a quad-channel 26/53GBaud linear PAM4 TIA with automatic gain and integrated AGC loop. TIAs consume extremely low power and are primarily geared towards single-mode fiber applications. TIA’s anode-to-anode spacing is 500um, which enables customers to place two sets of devices within the QSFP-DD form factor, enabling 800Gbps applications.

Both devices include RSSI for optical alignment and power monitoring, as well as I2C control of bandwidth, output amplitude, peak, LOS, gain, and other parameters.
