Macom Extends Transimpedance Amp Range
Low noise amps cover 100G to 800G applications
Macom Technology has announced availability two new transimpedance amplifiers (TIAs) optimised for use in optical networking applications ranging from 100Gbps DR1 to 800Gbps DR8 and FR8. The new TIAs are available today in flip chip and wire bonding packaging options for fast, flexible deployment in QSFP, QSFP-DD and OSFP optical modules.
The rapid evolution to single lane 100G and multiple lanes 200G, 400G and 800G connectivity is increasing the demand for high-performance, power-efficient optical components needed to maximise bandwidth density in the Cloud data centre. Macom's extended TIA family, complemented by a range of interoperable components, is designed to help customers accelerate this transition.
The MATA-05817 delivers low noise performance less than 2 µA RMS typical and supports bandwidth up to 35 GHz. The TIA supports high throughput optical data links in a very low power profile, optimal for use in high density optical data centre interconnects. The device is intended for 50G, 100G, 200G and 400G receivers using multilevel modulation such as PAM4.
The MATA-38134 is a quad 26/53GBaud linear PAM4 TIA with automatic gain and integrated AGC loop. The TIA consumes very low power and is primarily targeted for single-mode fibre applications. The TIA has 500um anode to anode spacing which allows customers to place two devices within the QSFP-DD form factor enabling 800Gbps applications.
Both devices include RSSI for photo-alignment and power monitoring and I2C control of bandwidth, output amplitude, peaking, LOS, gain and other parameters.

and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
