MACOM Expands 400G PAM-4 Chipset Solution for Data Center Optical Connectivity with New Low Noise Transimpedance Amplifiers

  • New MATA-03820 and MATA-03819 TIAs deliver industry-leading low
    noise performance while supporting bandwidth up to 35 GHz
  • Production version TIAs support wire bonding and flip chip assembly
  • MACOM to host product demonstrations at OFC 2019 in the MACOM
    InnovationZone at booth #2739

Technology Solutions Inc.
(“MACOM”), a leading supplier of
semiconductor solutions, today announced availability of production
versions of its four-channel (4 x 100G) 56/106 Gbit PAM-4 linear
transimpedance amplifiers (TIAs) optimized for use in 400G optical
modules targeting Cloud Data Center applications. The new MATA-03820
and the MATA-03819
are available in flip chip and wire bonding packaging options,
respectively, for fast, flexible deployment in single-lambda 400G-FR4
and DR4 format QSFP-DD and OSFP optical modules.

Delivering industry-leading low noise performance less than 1.5 uA RMS
typical and supporting bandwidth up to 35 GHz, MACOM’s MATA-03820 and
MATA-03819 TIA family supports high throughput optical data links in a
very low power profile, optimal for use in high density optical Data
Center interconnects. Features include RSSI for photo-alignment and
power monitoring, and I2C management interface for control of bandwidth,
output amplitude, peaking, loss of signal (LOS), gain and other key

“Molex is excited to collaborate with MACOM. Leveraging MACOM’s
technical support along with its broad portfolio of TIAs we are able to
ensure the availability of industry leading 400G optical modules,” said
Adit Narasimha, Vice President and General Manager, Molex
Optoelectronics. “The low noise performance of MACOM’s TIA along with
its flexible programmability, enable delivery of industry leading low
bit error performance when implemented with a DSP for 400G modules.”

“In the rapid evolution to single fiber 100G and parallel fiber 200G and
400G connectivity, we believe that MACOM has again affirmed its
leadership position in delivering the high-performance, power-efficient
optical components needed to maximize bandwidth density in the Cloud
Data Center,” said Marek Tlalka, Senior Director of Marketing,
High-Performance Analog, MACOM. “MACOM’s MATA-03820 and MATA-03819 TIA
family, complemented by a comprehensive portfolio of
seamlessly-interoperable MACOM components, is helping our customers
accelerate this transition.”

MACOM’s MATA-03820 and MATA-03819 TIAs are available to customers today
in production quantities. For more information about the products, visit-

For customers targeting APD applications, MACOM is now sampling its
MATA-03921 (flip chip) and MATA-03919 (wire bonded) TIAs.

MACOM will be hosting demonstrations of their expanded PAM-4 chipset for
100G, 200G and 400G applications at OFC 2019, featuring the MATA-03820
and MATA-03819 TIAs in customer module implementations and a live
200G/400G ROSA demonstration. OFC 2019 attendees are invited to visit
with MACOM at the San Diego Convention Center, California, in the MACOM
InnovationZone at booth #2739. For more information about MACOM’s
