10 Gb/s Intensity Modulators for 2000 ps/nm

Key Features

  • Compensates 2000 ps/nm total dispersion
  • Very low drive voltage (Vamp = 4.2 V typ.)
  • Small form factor (F10 standard)
  • Surface mountable (gull wing DC pins)
  • Integrated monitor photodiode for bias control
  • Integrated polarizer
  • Low insertion loss
  • High power handling
  • Enhanced bandwidth for FEC/Super-FEC


The PowerBit™ F2000 modulator is designed to extend the dispersion tolerance of chirped modulators from 1600 ps/nm to 2000 ps/nm. It is therefore ideally suited in extended metro applications up to 120 km link length, but also in long haul networks. A peculiar chirp mechanism introduced on the highly reliable and stable lithium niobate x-cut substrate accomplishes this unique and outstanding performance. The F2000 modulator is built on the F-10 footprint, an industry standard for MSA transponders. It is fully compatible with the classical F10 zero-chirped and chirped modulators. The F2000 can easily replace such modulators in existing transponder designs, upgrading for instance an existing transponder to an extended metro application at a very low cost. As known from other F10-family modulators, also this product offers an industry leading low drive voltage (4.2 V typical).
