Demonstration of 200G and 400G optical modules at ECOC 2018
The new solution will enable 200G modules at under 4.5W and 400G modules at under 9W total power consumption. The fully analogue architecture features extremely low latency and could be a lower cost solution compared to DSP-based offerings.
The full transmit and receive solution operates at up to 53 Gbps PAM-4 data rates per lane and is optimized for use in 200G QSFP56 and 400G QSFP-DD and OSFP module applications. The 200G demonstration is comprised of the MAOM-38051 four-channel transmit CDR and modulator driver and MAOT-025402 TOSA with embedded MAOP-L284CN CWDM L-PIC (silicon photonic integrated circuit with integrated CW lasers) transmitter, and on the receive side features the MAOR-053401 ROSA with embedded demultiplexer, BSP56B photodetectors MATA-03819 quad TIA and the MASC-38040 four-channel receive CDR. The combined MACOM solution enables a low bit error rate (BER) and better than 1E-8 pre-forward error correction (Pre-FEC).
The live demonstrations will be hosted at booth 579, in Rome, Italy, September 24th – 26th.
