MaxLinear Launches 32 GBd Linear Coherent TIA

Developed for 100G/200G Long-Haul and Metro Networks

MaxLinear logoMaxLinear released the MxL9105 dual-channel linear coherent transimpedance amplifier (TIA) for 100G/200G dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) coherent systems. The high transimpedance gain is well-suited for metro networks that have greater signal loss, due to the prevalence of older fiber and multiple interconnects. The low input referred noise density and extremely low power consumption make it ideal for the entire range of 32 GBd ICR module designs including type 1, type 2 and the latest micro-ICR.
