29 GB MZ Modulator Driver

The MAOM-002105 is a high performance MZ modulator driver IC for 40G DQPSK and 100G DP-QPSK applications. It consists of 3 amplifier stages packaged in a surface mount package with built-in decoupling capacitors. The part requires an external low frequency choke, ac coupling capacitors, and DC control circuitry for operation in a system environment. The part is available in a small 14.4 mm x 7 mm SMD package. The MAOM-002105 takes a single-ended input signal that can range from 400 mVpp to 550 mVpp to provide a single-ended output that can range from 6 Vpp to 8 Vpp. In addition, this driver has very low power consumption of 1.8 W at 7.5 Vpp output, low RMS jitter and a typical rise and fall time of 12ps.
