Macom Releases 25G APD Photodiode And Fabry-Perot Laser
New devices feature high bandwidth, high sensitivity and wide wavelength operation range for 25G NRZ and 50G PAM-4 applications
Macom Technology has announced the availability of its 25G Avalanche Photodiode (APD) and 25G Fabry-Perot (FP) Laser optical components for 5G wireless and data centre applications.
The APD28A is a back-illuminated 25G APD covering both O- and C-Bands with a usable wavelength range of 1250nm to 1650nm. The photodiode features greater than 20GHz (3dB) bandwidth, with high sensitivity of -22dBm when coupled to a low noise amplifier for transmission applications.
According to the company, the device performance enables customers to design optical sub-assemblies and transceivers suitable for 5G wireless mid-haul and long-haul networks, and extended reach (ER4) applications for 100Gbps, 200Gbps and 400Gbps data centre applications.
Macom will offer the 25G APD as bare die and a chip-on-carrier format.
The MAOD-131F25 is a directly modulated high speed 25Gbps 1310nm Fabry-Perot laser diode with a wide operating temperature range of -40degC to +95degC. The device is based on Macom's Etched Facet Technology (EFT) enabling scalability to high volume manufacturing. The 25G FP laser is suited to enable customers' 5G LTE fronthaul short reach applications as well as low cost 100Gpbs parallel single mode fibre (PSM4) application for data centres.
Macom will offer the 25G Fabry-Perot laser in a TO-Can package.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
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.
