With its unique characteristics and huge development potential, optical communication has gradually emerged and been widely used. Today, the market size of optical communication in my country alone has reached 150 billion yuan. In addition, as the infrastructure that requires high-speed data connections increases, the era of 10 Gigabit connections is approaching.

With its unique characteristics and huge development potential, optical communication has gradually emerged and been widely used. Today, the market size of optical communication in my country alone has reached 150 billion yuan. In addition, as the infrastructure that requires high-speed data connections increases, the era of 10 Gigabit connections is approaching. The industry predicts that by 2030, global fiber broadband users will reach 1.6 billion, the penetration rate of 10G home broadband will reach 23%, the total number of global connections will reach 200 billion, and the data generated globally will reach 1YB, 23 times that of 2020.

Behind such a huge market size is the support of technology. As a high-performance semiconductor solution provider, ADI provides a wide range of product solutions such as control units, optical path circuits, and power supplies in the field of optical module applications in optical communication technology. Not long ago, ADuCM43x, a new generation of optical module control solutions, was unveiled for the first time. In order to satisfy the curiosity of your friends, let Xia Xia, the market and application manager of ADI’s optical communication product line, give us an in-depth analysis of this series of products~

The new generation optical module control solution ADuCM43x has four major product advantages:

Advantage ①: High integration meets high channel density requirements of high-speed optical modules

In order to meet the high channel density requirements of high-speed optical modules, this highly integrated solution integrates multi-channel 12-bit SAR ADC, multi-channel voltage DAC, multi-channel current output DAC and thermoelectric cooler (TEC) controller. Only 4 chips can realize the integration of functions, and it adopts a 5mm*5mm 121-pin BGA package, which is very suitable for the small size of future optical modules. .

Advantage ②: High-performance analog technology once again highlights ADI’s “housekeeping skills”

The ADC/DAC integrated in the chip has high linearity and noise indicators, while the MCU and TEC controller have achieved the maximum efficiency optimization, and the power consumption of the solution has obvious advantages. At the same time, the chip has done a lot of optimization on the input and output pressure difference, the input and output pressure difference is reduced, the power consumption of the chip is further reduced, and the performance is more in line with the needs of the current industry.

Advantage ③: Ease of use accelerates the application of products.

ADuCM43x is mainly aimed at the application of 200/400/800G DML/EML and silicon photonics modules, and has carried out different customized designs for different application scenarios, which can not only support small size, but also realize the channel of Flash size and analog resources. Flexible configuration for data and other needs, and even different package sizes are available. In addition, for 400G modules, ADuCM43x supports this year’s CMIS4.0 protocol, and at the same time launches supporting software, which can help customers develop their software faster to adapt to the CMIS4.0 protocol.

Advantage ④: R&D by ADI’s local team in China

It can better satisfy domestic users and ensure supply chain security. ADuCM43x is a new generation of ADI’s localized optical module control products, and its launch will be able to better meet the domestic optical module market and the design needs of customers.

In addition to the fourth-generation controller product ADuCM43x, which is the “new favorite” in the industry, the first-generation controllers ADuC702X/712X, the second-generation ADuCM31x/ADuCM32x, and the third-generation ADuCM420/410 also performed very well. Among them, the earliest launched ADuC702X /712X is still widely used in optical modules in application scenarios such as GPON/10G/25G/100G.

In addition, from chip-level support to new technology and product field support, ADI also has a lot of very close and fruitful cooperation with Chinese communication equipment supplier customers, including working with them to complete a lot of work such as product definition and product application development. ADI has developed a series of very successful products based on the continuous establishment of deep partnership with Chinese customers.

In addition, ADI is very optimistic about China’s potential in the field of optical communications. The four generations of products in the ADI R&D center have witnessed and strongly supported the rapid development of China’s optical communications industry.
