MACOM Announces Industry’s First 400G-FR4 L-PIC for Cloud Data Center Applications

  • The MAOP-L564FP to provide customers with a high-performance, low
    cost 400G-FR4 solution for scaling to 400G applications
  • Fully integrated and self-calibrating solution aimed at reducing
    customers’ manufacturing time and cost
  • Standard compliant 400G-FR4 chipset includes new MAOM-005424 quad-channel
    SiPh driver and MAMF-11097A PIC controller

Technology Solutions Inc.
(“MACOM”) today announced the MAOP-L564FP,
a quad-channel silicon photonic integrated circuit with integrated
lasers (L-PIC) for 400G-FR4 applications. The MAOP-L564FP is expected to
enable customers to easily scale from 100G to 400G while significantly
reducing cost due to the ease of assembly, calibration and test, while
decreasing the production capital expenditures required.

Today’s explosive growth and insatiable demand for data is pushing Cloud
Data Center providers to continue to scale their solutions. Developing
highly-integrated, high-performance and cost-effective products from our
patented L-PIC technology platform, MACOM is enabling the transition to
100G, 400G and beyond with our fully MSA-compliant solutions for CWDM4,
FR4 and FR1/DR1.

MACOM’s 400G-FR4 offering, the MAOP-L564FP, includes CWDM lasers, PAM-4
modulators, a CWDM multiplexer and monolithic monitor photodiodes. This
device features high bandwidth and low power dissipation, and is
designed to operate up to 80°C.

“MACOM is continuing to leverage our L-PIC platform to enable the Cloud
Data Center market with fully optimized solutions for scaling to 100G,
400G and beyond,” said Vivek Rajgarhia, Senior Vice President and
General Manager, Lightwave, MACOM. “Leveraging our strong analog and
photonic product and technology portfolio, our new 400G-FR4 device is
expected to offer customers a high-performance, pre-engineered solution
that reduces overall cost and investment while shortening time to

The MAOP-L564FP uses the same pin out as the previously announced MAOP-L284CN
L-PIC for CWDM4 applications, enabling customers to more easily scale
from 100G to 400G.

Together with the newly announced MAOM-005424 companion quad-channel
driver and MAMF-11097A PIC controller, MACOM is providing a
pre-optimized chipset

solution co-developed for 400G Cloud Data Center applications.
