MAX3948 QuickView Data Sheet

Key Benefits

MAX3948
  • Consumes less than 2W for 4 transmit channels, enabling less than 3.5W QSFP+ module power consumption
  • DC-coupled laser interface (patent-pending, application number 13/352,011) reduces power consumption and external component count
DS4830
  • On-chip 13-bit ADC with dedicated round-robin offloads 16-bit microcontroller core and lowers clock speed; saves 75mW to 100mW compared to competitive solutions
  • Single-cycle media access control (MAC) allows DS4830 to speed through filter calculations and easily maintain four average power control (APC) loops
