MALD-02181

12.5 Gbps Low Power Burst Mode Laser Driver and Limiting Amplifier with DC-DC Controller, EEPROM and Digital Diagnostics

 The MALD-02181 is a low power, highly integrated, programmable laser driver and limiting amplifier intended for burst mode applications to 12.5Gbps. The internal state machine and EEPROM perform all functions necessary for standalone operation. The internal state machine will acquire and scale industry standard monitoring parameters in real time and make them available to a MAC or external host controller.
