MACOM intros GPON transimpedance amplifier

Communications silicon provider M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (MACOM; NASDAQ:MTSI) has unveiled the M02027, a transimpedance amplifier (TIA) for GPON optical network terminals (ONTs). It also may be used for SONET, CPRI base station, and SFF/SFP optical transceiver applications.

Communications silicon provider M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (MACOM; NASDAQ:MTSI) has unveiled the M02027, a transimpedance amplifier (TIA) for GPON optical network terminals (ONTs). It also may be used for SONET, CPRI base station, and SFF/SFP optical transceiver applications.

The M02027 supports data rates between 100 Mbps and 3.125 Gbps, with wire-bonding flexibility and a single supply of 3.3 V. For GPON applications, the device's high sensitivity enables receivers to use lower cost PIN photodiodes yet retain a performance margin adequate for GPON BOSA-on-board designs, MACOM says. The TIA also offers a wide dynamic operating range and "best in class" power dissipation, the company asserts.

The M02027 also features an output data polarity invert function and output average photodiode current for photo-alignment and receiver signal strength indicator (RSSI) average power monitoring.

The M02027 will be shown in private demonstrations at CIOE 2015, Booth #1B83, August 31-September 3 in Shenzhen, China.
