GigOptix Samples Next Gen Transimpedance Amplifier for 100G/400G Coherent

GigOptix has begun sampling its next generation GX3222B dual channel Linear Transimpedance Amplifier (TIA) designed for use in 100 Gbps DWDM optical receivers.

The device is a high performance, silicon germanium, dual channel 32Gbaud linear TIA with adjustable bandwidth control that enables its use in receiver modules in a number of fiber optic transmission systems such as current generation 100 Gbps DP‐QPSK optical systems in addition to future 400 Gbps optical systems.

The GX3222B is designed for use in 100G and beyond coherent optical receivers and includes critical functions such as high DC current cancellation, low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), linear gain over a high dynamic range and low power consumption.
