maxlinear inc-class a (MXL) Details

MaxLinear, Inc. provides integrated, radio-frequency (RF) and mixed-signal circuits for broadband communication and data center, metro, and long-haul transport network applications worldwide. The company offers RF receivers and RF receiver systems-on-chips to receive and demodulate broadband signals and physical medium devices that provide a constant current source, current-to-voltage regulation, and data alignment and retiming functionality in optical interconnect applications. Its products enable the display of broadband video content in various electronic devices, such as cable and terrestrial and satellite set top boxes, DOCSIS data and voice gateways, hybrid analog and digital televisions, satellite low-noise blocker transponders or outdoor units, and optical modules. The company also offers laser modulator drivers, which delivers the current to the laser diode to operate for a particular application; Transimpedance amplifiers that provide current-to-voltage conversion, converting the low-level current of a sensor to a voltage; and clock and data recovery circuits, which generate a clock from an approximate frequency reference and then phase-aligns to the transitions in the data stream with a phase-locked loop. It sells its products to original equipment manufacturers, module makers, and original design manufacturers through direct sales force, third party sales representatives, and a network of distributors. MaxLinear, Inc. was incorporated in 2003 and is headquartered in Carlsbad, California.

maxlinear inc-class a (MXL) Key Developments

MaxLinear, Inc. Announces the New MxL9201; FiberHome Telecommunications Technologies Co. Selects MaxLinear’s MxL9201 32Gbps Quad-Lane Modulator Driver IC for its Latest 100Gbps Telecom Applications

MaxLinear, Inc. announced the new MxL9201, a 32Gbps quad-lane modulator driver for 100Gbps long-haul telecommunications network applications. The MxL9201 offers high-precision amplification of four 32Gbps input signals to output levels as high as 7V. The MxL9201 drives a lithium niobate modulator to deliver exceptional performance to long-haul transmission applications at power and price points. The part is delivered in a single surface-mount package, which takes up much less board space and costs less than competitive solutions that are connectorized and bulky. The new MxL9201 will be on display at OFC 2015. The MxL9201 is now sampling, with general availability planned for May 2015. The company also announced that FiberHome Telecommunications Technologies Co. has selected the IC for use in its latest 100Gbps metro and long-haul networking systems.

MaxLinear, Inc. Launches Wide Bandwidth Linear 56Gbps TIA for PAM-4 & DMT Based 100Gbps / 400Gbps Data Center Networks

MaxLinear Inc. announced the MxL9103, a 56Gbps wide bandwidth linear trans-impedance amplifier (TIA) for 100Gbps /400Gbps fiber-optic data center networks based on PAM-4 & DMT modulation schemes. The MxL9103 is a single-channel wide-bandwidth linear TIA that supports four level pulse-amplitude modulation (PAM-4) based implementations of emerging 100Gbps and 400Gbps optical networking systems in modern data centers. In addition to PAM-4 applications, the IC can also be used for discrete multi-tone modulation (DMT) applications utilized in long haul, and metro optical transport systems. The device also integrates automatic gain control (AGC) and received-signal-strength-indicator (RSSI) functions, which greatly simplify the design of such complex networking systems. The high throughput and linearity of the MxL9103 TIA enables module manufacturers to reduce costly optical and electrical components in their designs, thereby lowering cost and energy consumption. For example, a complete 100Gbps receive optical sub-assembly (ROSA) can be developed using just two MxL9103 TIAs, two photo diodes, and the associated optical demux/filter. This represents a significant cost and power saving relative to four 28Gbps TIAs, 4 photo diodes, and associated demux/filters required in conventional NRZ modulation-based implementation 100Gbps systems. The new MxL9103 will be on display at OFC 2015 (March 24-26; booth 1968). The MxL9103 is sampling in April, with general availability planned for September 2015.

MaxLinear, Inc. Announces New 56Gbps Driver and TIA ICs Reduce Power, Size and Cost for Next-Generation 100Gbps / 400Gbps Optical Modules

MaxLinear, Inc. announced a new family of 56Gbps transmission ICs that cut in half the number of optical channels needed in optical transmission modules, reducing power consumption, size and cost for 100Gbps and 400Gbps network operators. The company’s new ICs include the MxL9108, a 56Gbps limiting trans-impedance amplifier, and two new 56Gbps modulator drivers, the MxL9204 and MxL9205. The ultra-wide bandwidths of the TIA and drivers enable non-return-to-zero (NRZ) signaling at 56Gbps. NRZ modulation eliminates the need for DSP and linear components that are required for more complex modulation techniques, simplifying optical transceiver implementation and reducing cost. When compared to 28Gbps alternatives, these new devices will halve the number of optical channels (from four to two) needed to support 100Gbps line rates, reducing size, cost and power draw of optical transmission modules. In 400Gbps applications, the MxL9204 and MxL9205 drivers coupled with CWDM transmission optical subassemblies, and the MxL9108 coupled with high-performance photo diodes, combine to deliver low-power, cost-effective modules that support this performance requirement. The new components will be on display at OFC 2015 (March 24-26; booth 1968) and they are the first new ICs from the former Physpeed Co. Ltd., which MaxLinear acquired in November 2014. The MxL9108 features an internal feedback loop for single-ended to differential signal conversion and output decision threshold adjustment. The integrated differential linear amplifier has >37GHz bandwidth and supports NRZ data rates of up to 56Gbps. The MxL9204 and MxL9205 are high-performance 56Gbps modulator driver ICs. The MxL9204 is designed to drive externally modulated lasers (EMLs) and MxL9205 is optimized for driving InP MZ modulators or Si-Photonic-based optical modulators. Both ICs have on-chip input 50 -- terminations and can be driven single-ended or differentially. The modulator drivers have duty cycle control, output amplitude control and output DC level adjustment. The single-ended output amplitude of the MxL9204 can be adjusted up to a maximum of 2.5Vpp (into 50O load) and the MxL9205 can support differential output amplitudes of up to 5Vpp. No external bias-T is required at data outputs. The MxL9204/MxL9205 are available in die form. All three 56Gbps parts are sampling now, with general availability planned for July 2015.
