SAN DIEGO -- Building on its leadership in ultrafast 100G silicon, Micram has announced an impressive slate of new components at this week's Optical Fiber Conference in San Diego, including the first silicon supporting the On-Off Keying (OOK) modulation scheme.

"Our goal in 100G is to give optical communications visionaries the tools they need to bring their ideas to life as quickly as possible," said Matthias Tom Frei, CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board.  of Micram. "Our latest range of components greatly expands what aggressive developers can achieve over the next 12 to 18 months. In particular, we are announcing the first silicon supporting OOK, an important electrical modulation scheme that Micram is taking from the theoretical to the practical with our new 112G Mux/Demux chips."

12 New 100G Development Chips

In its new range of silicon, Micram provides several varied multiplexer, demultiplexer and MSDFF components supporting the 30 Gb/s and 60 Gb/s speed ranges. The MX4130F 4:1 Mux breaks new ground by providing a FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) A type of gate array that is programmed in the field rather than in a semiconductor fab. Containing up to hundreds of thousands of gates, there are a variety of FPGA architectures on the market.  control layer, enabling very high speed data streams to be generated by off-the-shelf FPGAs from Xilinx and Altera.

Also new from Micram are a series of single and quad transimpedance amplifiers (TIA (1) (Telecommunications Industry Association, Arlington, VA, www.tiaonline.org) A membership organization founded in 1988 that sets telecommunications standards worldwide. It was originally an EIA working group that was spun off and merged with the U.S. ) supporting both 3.3V and 5.2V applications, as well as a clock distribution module and frequency divider chip.

 Live Demonstration

Also at OFC this week, Micram is teaming with test and measurement leader LeCroy Corporation to demonstrate both the Micram VEGA DAC 25's superior performance in real-time signal generation and the unique capabilities of the LeCroy WaveMaster sampling oscilloscopes in measuring that remarkable performance.

In the live demonstration, signals generated by the VEGA DAC 25 are captured, displayed and measured by a LeCroy WaveMaster 8 Zi, the world's fastest, highest bandwidth real-time digital oscilloscope oscilloscope (əsĭl`əskōp'), electronic device used to produce visual displays corresponding to electrical signals. Displays of such nonelectrical phenomena as the variations of a sound's intensity can be made if the phenomena are  and one of very few test devices that can keep up with the extraordinary performance of Micram VEGA.
