64 GBaud Quad Channel, Linear Differential Modulator Driver

The MAOM-006408 is a high performance quad channel differential input / differential output linear modulator driver for 64 Gbaud applications. The part has up to 19 dB of gain with 15 dB of gain range and a maximum output voltage of 3 VPPD. It is available in bare die form for integration in a TOSA and can be directly DC coupled to an optical modulator for maximum bandwidth, minimum size and minimum power dissipation of only 390 mW per channel. The MAOM-006408 also has detectors on each output and frequency response peaking adjustment to optimize performance with different modulators and assemblies.
