M/A-COM Tech launches lowest-power EML driver, enabling CFP/CFP2 applications

At the Optical Fiber Communication/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC 2013) in Anaheim, California (19-21 March), analog semiconductor maker M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA has launched what it claims is the industry’s lowest-power electro-absorption modulator laser (EML) driver.

Available in a 4mm x 4mm surface-mount package, the MAOM-002203 is a high-performance electro-absorption modulator driver IC, with a maximum data rate of 28Gbps for 100G applications. The device has power consumption of just 0.75W, low RMS jitter and a typical rise and fall time of 12.5ps, making it suitable as a 100G driver.

“This driver enables customers to effectively meet next-generation CFP/CFP2 power, size and cost requirements,” says M/A-COM’s business development manager Ray Moroney.

The MAOM-002203 is driven with a differential input signal that can range from 250mVpp to 500mVpp, providing an output that can be controlled from 1.0Vpp to 2.5Vpp. The driver also has separate integrated high-frequency coils, which allows for biasing the driver and the EML, providing an efficient device for CFP and CFP2 applications.

Samples of the MAOM-002203 are available from stock.
