MACOM (MTSI) Boosts Data Center Reach With New Product Family
MACOM MTSI introduced the 226Gbps per lane technology product family in a bid to address the requirements of 1.6Tbps small form-factor optical module applications.
Notably, the new product family comprises transimpedance amplifiers, MATA-40734 and MATA-40736, an externally modulated laser driver, MAOM-011112 and a photodiode MARP-BP112.
The latest products are well-equipped to reduce the number of fibers required to carry 1.6Tbits of traffic by half. Also, these products allow the existing 800Gbps fiber plant to be reused for 1.6Tbps applications and the development of higher-density optical modules.
The latest move of the company positions it well to capitalize on the growth prospects present in the data center market.
