Surface Mount Amplifier
The MDA-1220-08S is a surface mount modulator driver amplifier and provides RF shielding in a hermetically sealed small form factor package (0.679 inches× 0.447 inches× 0.170×). The MDA-1220-08S can be used in OC-192/STM-64 communications system applications with or without forward-error correction (FEC) protocols. The amplifier offers wide bandwidth operation of 30 kHz to 15 GHz. Standard performance characteristics include 20 dB typical gain, an output voltage of up to 7.5 V peak-to-peak into a 50 ohm optical modulator load, 15 ps rise time, and ± 1.5 dB gain ripple.
