MACOM's next-generation ultra high sensitivity Transimpedance Amplifier (TIA)

August 28, 2015

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc., a leading supplier of high-performance analog, RF, microwave and optical semiconductor products, today announced the new M02027, next generation high-performance TIA targeted for GPON optical network unit (ONU) equipment.

MACOM's M02027 enables GPON receivers to utilize lower cost PIN photodiodes while offering performance margin in the stringent GPON BOSA-on-Board environment. The device delivers ultra high sensitivity with PIN photodiodes and wide dynamic operating range while offering the best in class power dissipation.

The M02027 is targeted toward GPON ONU, SONET, CPRI base station and SFF/SFP module applications. The device supports multi-data rates between 100 Mbps to 3.125 Gbps with wire bonding flexibility and a single supply of 3.3V. The M02027 provides customers with output data polarity invert function and output average photodiode current for photo-alignment and receiver signal strength indicator (RSSI) average power monitoring.

This new addition to the TIA product line complements MACOM's comprehensive PON product portfolio, which already includes high-performance laser diodes and highly integrated laser drivers with digital monitoring and dual-closed-loop operation for complete PON solutions.

"The new GPON ONU TIA offers superior optical sensitivity and overload performance with low cost PIN photodiode at best in class power dissipation," said Angus Lai, Director of Product Marketing, High-Performance Analog at MACOM. "We believe the M02027 offers a competitive cost-performance ratio and enables our customers to tackle fast growing GPON deployments."

The M02027 will be shown in private demonstrations for customers, partners, press and analysts at CIOE 2015, Booth #1B83, August 31-September 3 in Shenzhen, China. For more information or to schedule a demonstration, please contact your local MACOM sales representative.
