Single Channel 53 Gbaud Linear EML Driver

The MAOM-005321 is a high performance linear EML driver for single-lambda 100G applications using 53 Gbaud PAM4 modulation. The device has linear differential to single-ended voltage gain which is adjustable from 5 dB to 11 dB and incorporates a peak detector for use in an externally controlled automatic power control (APC) loop. The linear  output voltage can be adjusted up to 1.8 Vpp with typical power dissipation of 0.4 W and total harmonic distortion of less than 4%. The part is available in a 3mm X 4mm surface mount package with integrated high frequency coils.
