MACOM MAOM-03409B 32 Gbps Linear Differential Modulator Driver IC

March 17, 2015
MACOM developed the MAOM-03409B in response to the metro market's need for pluggable modules that can enable higher-density, lower-cost systems suited for higher volume.
MACOM’s linear driver was specifically designed for indium phosphide optical modulators and is enabling coherent CFP2 modules for 100-Gbps and 200-Gbps deployments in the metro with its low power dissipation of less than 0.8 W per channel and an output voltage of 4 Vpp. Judge's Comment.

MACOM developed the MAOM-03409B in response to the metro market's need for pluggable modules that can enable higher-density, lower-cost systems suited for higher volume. Requirements include electrical and optical components with lower power dissipation in smaller form factors. Additionally, for shorter metro distances, 16QAM can be used to increase data rates to 200 Gbps. The MAOM-03409B, therefore, has enabled a coherent CFP2 module with data rates up to 200 Gbps.

Specifically, the MAOM-03409B is a quad-channel linear differential modulator driver designed for use with differential indium phosphide optical modulators in coherent CFP2 optical modules. Its power consumption is up to 4 Vpp linear output voltage and it is packaged in a 14x9.1-mm surface mount package, integrated with bias chokes and coupling capacitors.
