2.5 Gb/s Intensity Modulator - Small Form Factor

Key Features

  • Minimized form factor,
    6.5 cm boot-to-boot
  • EML-driver compatible
  • Covers extended C and L-Band
  • Enables >10 dBm output power
  • Fully footprint compatible to other
    "Mini" modulators
  • Further enhanced bias stability
  • Integrated photodiode
  • PM output fiber optional


Oclaro (formerly Avanex) has designed this advanced 2.5 Gb/s modulator specifically for application in emerging DWDM metro systems where cost, size and performance are key factors. Enabling maximum bandwidth efficiency, this modulator can replace EMLs in systems designed for channel spacings of 50 and 25 GHz. The potential for >10 dB output power can contribute to reduce amplifier stages in metro networks. Moreover, lithium niobate opens the L-band for DWDM metro systems. The potential channel count can be increased by a factor of ten compared to EMLs. Oclaro's new 2.5 Gb/s small form factor lithium niobate modulator offers a very cost-effective solution for high performance extended metro and long-haul DWDM networks at medium bit-rates.
