M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc.(MTSI - Snapshot Report) recently extended its product portfolio of modulator drivers with the introduction of its latest product MAOM-003404.

The new modulator driver comes in a quad channel, supported with 32 Gbps differential modulator driver integrated circuit (IC). The four channels are enclosed within a surface mount package, which facilitate maximum isolation and minimum crosstalk among the channels.

Moreover, the device fulfils all the required criteria of CFP2 input voltage, which makes it an ideal choice for next generation 100G coherent in CFP/CFP2 form factors.

Notably, this modulator driver is extremely small and has low power consumption. These two factors facilitate 100G coherent solutions in the pluggable form factors that are limited in both power and size. The new product is also an ideal choice for real-estate constrained customers who require high performance, low power modulator driver solutions.

MACOM believes that its latest launch will likely revolutionize the market and kickstart the next phase of 100G coherent applications. Pluggable form factors are integral to meet stringent power and size requirements and MAOM-003404 is a befitting solution to it.

Headquartered in Lowell, Mass., MACOM provides semiconductor solutions that are used in radio frequency microwave and millimeter wave applications. Some of its key products are Passive Components, Active Components, Diodes, Switches and Multi-Chip Modules, which are applied in sectors such as optical communications, medical, mobile devices, wireless infrastructure, aerospace and defense. This ISO9001 international quality standard certified company has design and manufacturing offices across North America, Australia, Europe and Asia.

MACOM currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Some other stocks in the industry that are worth a look include MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation (MX - Snapshot Report), Microchip Technology Inc. (MCHP - Analyst Report) and ­­­­­­Diodes Incorporated (DIOD - Snapshot Report). All the mentioned stocks carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
