MaxLinear launches 32Gbaud dual-channel linear coherent transimpedance amplifier

MaxLinear, a provider of radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits, is introducing the MxL9105, a dual-channel linear coherent transimpedance amplifier (TIA) for 100Gb/s and 200Gb/s dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) coherent systems.

With low input-referred noise density, total harmonic distortion (THD), power dissipation, channel crosstalk and high channel bandwidth, the MxL9105 completely satisfies the performance requirements of next-generation intradyne coherent receiver (ICR) designs for long-haul and metro applications, the company says.

MaxLinear launches 32Gbaud coherent modulator driver IC

MaxLinear, a provider of radio frequency and mixed-signal integrated circuits for communications applications, has unveiled the MxL9207, a quad-channel lithium niobate (LiNbO3) Mach-Zehnder (MZ) modulator driver IC for next-generation 100Gb/s optical networks.

The MxL9207 supports complex modulation schemes for coherent transmission in ultra-long-haul networks, which have the most challenging system requirements. With a 19mm x 13mm SMT package, the device is suitable for both new and legacy 100Gb/s coherent system designs.
