40G chipset boosts datacenter throughput at lower power

40G chipset boosts datacenter throughput at lower power

Data centers and data communication networks need to significantly increase data density while staying within their already constrained power budgets. Maxim’s QSFP+ transmitter solution addresses both challenges. The QSFP+ modules supply 4x the data throughput in only 1.5x the area of a single-channel SFP+ solution. Equally important, Maxim’s chipset enables 4 x 10Gbps QSFP+ modules to consume less power per channel than single SFP+ modules. Service providers and network operators can now enjoy the benefits of a low-power solution that extends system life, reduces operational expense, and conserves valuable energy resources.

The MAX3948 consumes less than 2 W for four transmit channels, enabling less than 3.5 W QSFP+ module power consumption. The  DC-coupled laser interface reduces power consumption and external component count.

The DS4830’s on-chip 13-bit ADC with dedicated round-robin offloads 16-bit microcontroller core and lowers clock speed; saves 75 mW to 100 mW compared to competitive solutions.  The device’s single-cycle multiply accumulator (MAC) allows DS4830 to speed through filter calculations and easily maintain four average power control (APC) loops.

The MAX3948 is available in a 3 mm x 3 mm, 16-pin TQFN package and has a specified a temperature range of -40 to +95°C.

The DS4830 is available in a 5 mm x 5 mm, 40-pin TQFN package.
