MACOM Demos Open Eye MSA Compliant Analog Chipset

Posted Sep 06, 2019 by MACOM

MACOM, at CIOE 2019, has demonstrated a complete 200G optical module solution, designed in collaboration with an industry leading optical manufacturer, leveraging MACOM’s Open Eye MSA compliant analog chipset. The chipset is optimized for volume-scale deployment in high-density Cloud Data Center links.

Targeted for faster, power efficient and lower cost optical interconnects, the chipset aims to provide a clear pathway to 200G throughput speeds utilizing industry leading analog components. MACOM’s fully analog transmit and receive chipset is comprised of the MAOM-38053 four-channel transmit CDR with integrated laser driver and, on the receive side, features MACOM BSP56B photodetectors, a MATA-03819 quad TIA and the MASC-38040 four-channel receive CDR.

MACOM is applying its expertise and market leadership in 25Gbps and 100Gbps solutions to 50Gbps PAM-4 applications and specifically to 200G QSFP and 2 x 200G OSFP/QSFP-DD modules to bring the benefits of low power and low latency solutions in addition to existing digital signal processing (DSP) architectures, to Cloud Data Centers.

All of the MACOM analog chipset products mentioned are Open Eye MSA compliant and interoperable with multiple vendors. The chipset is sampling to customers and can be utilized for both single mode and multimode fiber applications. CIOE 2019 attendees are invited to visit with MACOM’s Booth #1A32 to preview the live demonstration and learn more about the chipset.
