Data Center Connectivity

MaxLinear’s TIAs and PAM4 DSPs with integrated driver enable 100G and 400G optical interconnects inside the data center. These amplifier and transceiver solutions give optical module vendors access to the latest PAM4-based 100Gbps wavelength technology and deliver solutions that enable hyperscale and enterprise data centers to keep pace with the ever-growing demand for data. The TIAs and PAM4 DSP SoCs were developed in conjunction to offer seamless operation and optimum performance. MaxLinear transceivers digitize and aggregate one, two or four lanes of 100Gps of high-speed data signals coming across the fiber, delivering 100Gbps, 200Gbps or 400Gbps of data throughput.

Applications:

  • PAM4 DSP for QSFP28, QSFP-DD, OSFP form factor modules
  • TIAs for 25Gb to 100Gb GSFP, QSFP28, QSFP-DD and OSFP modules
