Modulators

10-12.5 Gb/s Intensity Modulators - Low Drive Voltage

Key Features

  • Very low drive voltage
  • Standard "F"-type footprint for 4" MSA
  • C and L-Band operation
  • Enhanced E/O bandwidth for up to 12.5 Gb/s modulation speed
  • Low insertion loss
  • High extinction ratio
  • Integrated monitor photodiode
  • Available with fixed chirp

Description

Oclaro’s (formerly Avanex) intensity modulators are based on the Mach-Zehnder interferometer architecture. They are manufactured using the highly reliable titanium indiffusion technology in x-cut, y-propagating lithium niobate substrates. This 10 Gb/s - 12.5 Gb/s modulator is designed for high bit rate long haul communication systems that requires the superior performance of x-cut lithium niobate. Exceptionally low drive voltage enables low power consumption, reducing the overall transmitter cost. A small footprint and low profile makes the modulator compatible with the 10 Gb/s MSA transponder standard. A single Tx board design can accommodate either the zero-chirp or the fixed chirp modulator version.
