[Exhibitor] MACOM | New lasers released to support application in 5G

2021-04-23 14:36:46Source:CIOE

MACOM, a leading global provider of semiconductor solutions, recently announced its new CLEAR DIAMOND LASER ™ series of lasers, including a new generation of 25G and 50G high-speed lasers.

The CLEAR DIAMOND LASER™ series features MACOM's latest laser development and manufacturing technologies, including improved semiconductor process control and SingleRidge design, to improve optical performance and reliability while increasing the number of individual wafer lasers produced and reducing costs. The laser series continues to take advantage of MACOM's proprietary EtchedFacet Technology, and wafer-level automated testing is better suited for high-volume production to support high-volume applications, including 5G wireless transmission and cloud data center solutions.  

The CLEAR DIAMOND LASER™ series offers customers ease of use and design flexibility, as all lasers can be designed with the same IC layout regardless of application. This will allow customers to develop a unified design platform and assembly flow for different applications, resulting in shorter product design cycles and faster time to market.

The CLEAR DIAMOND LASER™ series offers both DFB and FP lasers with Indium Phosphide (InP) processes and wafer-level production test advantages, including wafer-level full-temperature testing, automated optical inspection (AOI), to improve production efficiency and quality control.

The CLEAR DIAMOND LASER™ series offers more than 50 wavelengths of DFB lasers ranging from 1270nm - 1370nm in a wide range of temperatures for a variety of applications including CWDM6, MWDM12, 50G PAM4, DWDM16, LWDM12, LR4, CWDM4 and BiDi 1270/1330nm. The product series offers a low-cost, highly reliable production platform capable of simultaneous high-volume production of multiple wavelength lasers.The DFB lasers can be used in both cooled and uncooled application scenarios and support optical transmission distances from a few hundred meters to over 10 kilometers.

The CLEAR DIAMOND LASER™ series also includes high-speed, direct-tuned 25Gbps 1310nm FP lasers, FP lasers TO-CAN supporting industrial grade applications from -40°C to +85°C, 5G fronthaul applications up to 2km, and low-cost 100GPSM4 data center application solutions.

MACOM offers all lasers of the CLEAR DIAMOND LASER™ series in chip and TO-CAN packages.
