Optical Components for Broadband Networking
Broadcom is a global technology leader in Indium Phosphide (InP) based optical components. Our products enable applications in the Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH), Mobile Broadband Internet Access, high performance computing, Datacenter and Enterprise Networking, Metro and Long-Haul Data Communications markets.
A unique set of optical device integration and manufacturing capabilities enable both hybrid integration using different elements in a single package, and monolithic integration on a single chip.
Broadcom’s Optical Components now include Cosemi’s photodetector business. For information on those products, visit the Cosemi photodiodes page.
Broadcom operates one of the leading Indium Phosphide fabrication facilities in the world with comprehensive, in-house manufacturing capability from epitaxial growth to wafer and chip fabrication, and a world-class design capability.
Broadcom is the leading supplier of Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) lasers and photo detectors for optical communication systems. The 850nm multimode VCSEL and PIN devices are specifically designed to meet today’s high-performance, short-reach data communication network needs.
In addition to a complete range of GaAs die components, Broadcom can also offer a “one stop shop” chip kit solution of Physical Medium Dependent Integrated Circuits (PMD-ICs) of Trans-Impedance Amplifiers (TIAs), laser drivers (LDs), and clock and data recovery (CDRs) for data center, high performance computing, and enterprise storage networking applications.
Unique products that include, single-sided and double-sided wafer processing, diffractive and refractive lenses, metal patterns and apertures, and dielectic coatings.
Broadcom offers a wide portfolio of optical transmit and receive subassemblies suitable for LAN/ data center, metro and long-haul applications.
Broadcom offers a wide portfolio of TO-Can packaged lasers and detectors, for FTTx, Wireless Backhaul and other applications.
