GigOptix Releases 32G Quad Channel Linear Modulator Driver

GigOptix announced its newest linear quad-channel modulator driver, the GX62476, for low-power coherent metro applications.

The device is a quad-channel, 32Gbps solution offering the lowest power dissipation of less than 1.1W/channel at a 5VPP swing using 5V supply voltage and 0.75W/channel at a 3VPP swing using a 3.3V supply voltage. The linear driver is optimized for use with available low drive voltage Lithium Niobate and Indium Phosphide optical modulators, requiring single ended drive to provide the industry’s lowest power consumption with the best linearity solution in a small form factor SMT package for coherent CFP and CFP2 modules. Sampling is underway.
