MACOM
Technology Solutions Inc.
("MACOM"), a leading supplier of
high-performance RF, microwave, millimeterwave and photonic solutions,
today announced live demonstrations of the industry's first complete
chipset solution for 200G and 400G CWDM optical module providers
servicing Cloud Data Center applications. This solution enables 200G
modules at under 4.5W and 400G modules at under 9W total power
consumption, thus delivering industry-leading power efficiency with a
fully analog architecture that ensures extremely low latency and is
poised to provide a lower cost option compared to DSP-based offerings.

MACOM's full transmit and receive solution operates at up to 53 Gbps
PAM-4 data rates per lane and is optimized for use in 200G QSFP56 and
400G QSFP-DD and OSFP module applications. For 200G demonstration, the
solution is comprised of the MAOM-38051 four-channel transmit CDR and
modulator driver and MAOT-025402 TOSA with embedded MAOP-L284CN CWDM
L-PIC™ (silicon photonic integrated circuit with integrated CW lasers)
transmitter, and on the receive side features the MAOR-053401 ROSA with
embedded demultiplexer, BSP56B photodetectors MATA-03819 quad TIA and
the MASC-38040 four-channel receive CDR. The combined, high-performance
MACOM solution enables a low bit error rate (BER) and better than 1E-8
pre-forward error correction (Pre-FEC).

"MACOM is committed to leading the evolution of Data Center
interconnects from 100G to 200G and 400G, as evidenced by our unique
ability to deliver a complete 200G chipset and TOSA/ROSA subassembly
solution with market leading performance and power efficiency," said
Gary Shah, Vice President, High-Performance Analog Business Line, MACOM.
"With this solution, optical module providers are expected to benefit
from seamless component interoperability and a unified support team,
reducing design complexity and costs while accelerating their time to
market."

All of the MACOM products highlighted in the forthcoming 200G live
demonstrations are sampling to customers today, with production
availability targeted for early 2019. Customers can select from
component-level solutions or a TOSA/ROSA subassembly-level solution.

MACOM will host the live demonstrations of its fully analog 200G
solution at the China International Optoelectronic Exposition (CIOE),
Booth #1A32, in Shenzhen, China, September 5th– 8th,
and at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC), Booth
#579, in Rome, Italy, September 24th– 26th. For
