Single Channel 53 Gbaud Linear SiP Modulator Driver

The MAOM-005324 is a high performance single channel linear differential Mach-Zender modulator driver for 400G applications using 53 Gbaud PAM4 modulation. The device has linear differential to differential voltage gain which is adjustable from 13 dB to 17 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 3.6 Vppd with typical power dissipation of 0.4 W per channel and total harmonic distortion of less than 4%. The part is available in a TBD mm X TBD mm surface mount package with integrated high frequency coils.
