ECOC 2021: TRUMPF demonstrates live 200G and 400G solutions for datacom applications

Live showcase on 56Gbps per channel VCSEL and photodiode solutions for datacom // Interoperability between 56Gbps VCSEL and photodiode from TRUMPF with corresponding VCSEL driver and TIA from MACOM demonstrated // Experience error-free optical data communication with high-speed components over a 70 m fiber cable

Ulm, September 13, 2021 - TRUMPF Photonic Components, a global leader in VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers) and photodiode solutions for the consumer electronics, data communications, industrial sensing and heating is presenting a live showcase on its VCSEL and photodiode solutions together with MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. (MACOM) VCSEL drivers and transimpedance amplifiers (TIAs) at ECOC 2021, booth 501.
With this live demonstration over a 70 m fiber cable, the component suppliers provide a live experience on the interoperability of the TRUMPF 56Gbps per channel VCSEL and photodiode paired with corresponding VCSEL driver and TIA for 56Gbps per channel applications from MACOM. The demonstrated signal integrity is shown to be better than the bit error rate (BER) of 1E-11. Next to an error-free optical data communication, the demonstration showcases proven, highly optimized optics and PMD solutions for applications in datacom, including 400Gbps QSFP-DD SR8 and QSFP-DD AOC for data centers.

In addition to compliance with the required industry standards, enhanced reliability of TRUMPF 56Gbps per channel VCSEL is provided, as they are featured with a fully passivated die and extra mechanical protection for the mesa. Better shielding of the matching photodiode is reached by a very low dark current and additional ground pad, which also provides ground-signal or signal-ground option for mounting.

 “We are happy to be working with MACOM for a joint showcase demonstration, as together we provide a proven reputable solution for optics and PMDs to our customers,” says Ralph Gudde, VP of Marketing and Sales at TRUMPF. “With 56Gbps per channel solutions in place, we are now focused on delivering 112Gbps per channel VCSELs and photodiodes towards early 2022” he added.

MACOM is a global designer and manufacturer of semiconductor products, and a leading supplier of TIAs, laser drivers and other high-performance analog components.

“Showcasing interoperability of VCSELs and photodiodes with MACOM’s laser drivers and TIAs, can deliver customers an excellent bit-error performance at 56Gbps per channel for 200Gbps and 400Gbps optical module applications,” said Marek Tlalka, Senior Director, High-Performance Analog, at MACOM. “After successfully proving the high performance and interoperability of these components, we are looking forward to continuing our work towards the next generation 112Gbps per channel solutions.”
