SANTA ROSA, CALIF.----October 29, 2010—
The OA3MHQM is a compact, four channel, high performance, broadband optical modulator driver for 100 G DP-QPSK applications featuring low jitter, 8V amplitude and excellent gain and group delay flatness. It is ideally suited for integration into small form-factor (SFF) transponders.
The OA3MHQM module provides four 32Gb/s channels with GPPO connectors and no external components are required for operation. The module is designed to couple directly with the standard 100 G multiplexer and modulator connector spacings for convenient system integration. The OA3MHQM has gain and power ideally suited for driving either electro-absorption modulators or Lithium Niobate modulators.
Key features of the OA3MHQM include:
- Quad operating up to 32 Gb/s per channel for 100 G DP-QPSK applications
- Snaps on to OIF Tx modulator and MUX
- Small form factor
- Four 8V outputs
- 0.8ps added RMS jitter
- 8ps rise/fall time
- Hermetically sealed
"This high performance quad modulator driver for 100 G applications allows our customers quick time to market and minimizes the problems associated with surface mount technologies like high thermal impedance and cross-talk. Considering the size of available SMT solutions with all the supporting components for biasing, the OA3MHQM actually occupies less board area" stated Steve Sekel, VP of Product Management.
The Centellax OA3MHQM is hermetic and compliant with Telcordia Standards GR-357. Production samples are available immediately.
