Today’s explosive growth and insatiable demand for data is pushing Cloud Data Center providers to continue to scale their solutions. Developing highly-integrated, high-performance and cost-effective products from our patented L-PIC technology platform, MACOM is enabling the transition to 100G, 400G and beyond with our fully MSA-compliant solutions for CWDM4, FR4 and FR1/DR1.

MACOM’s 400G-FR4 offering, the MAOP-L564FP, includes CWDM lasers, PAM-4 modulators, a CWDM multiplexer and monolithic monitor photodiodes. This device features high bandwidth and low power dissipation, and is designed to operate up to 80°C.

“MACOM is continuing to leverage our L-PIC platform to enable the Cloud Data Center market with fully optimized solutions for scaling to 100G, 400G and beyond,” said Vivek Rajgarhia, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Lightwave, MACOM. “Leveraging our strong analog and photonic product and technology portfolio, our new 400G-FR4 device is expected to offer customers a high-performance, pre-engineered solution that reduces overall cost and investment while shortening time to market.”

The MAOP-L564FP uses the same pin out as the previously announced MAOP-L284CN L-PIC for CWDM4 applications, enabling customers to more easily scale from 100G to 400G.

Together with the newly announced MAOM-005424 companion quad-channel driver and MAMF-11097A PIC controller, MACOM is providing a pre-optimized chipset

solution co-developed for 400G Cloud Data Center applications.
