MACOM offers a full suite of high-speed Fabry-Perot (FP) lasers, Distributed Feedback Lasers (DFB) and high-power CW lasers in the O-band and C-band.  MACOM’s lasers have been developed for wireless backhaul, data center, PON, RF-over-Fiber, LiDAR, optical sensors, co-packaged optics, and coherent lite applications. MACOM is pushing the boundaries of data rate, power, reliability, and wavelength stability of laser technology and has developed highly specialized customer specific designs. 


MACOM is a high-volume manufacturer of lasers, deploying more than 100 million devices with a reliability of less than 50 FIT and greater than 100 years of wear-out lifetime. Manufacturing with a 4-inch fab and 100% wafer-scale testing allows a competitive cost profile and scalability for any current and future applications.


MACOM Lasers...
