Surface-Mount Amplifier for 40 Gb/s Opto Networks
Tue, 05/26/2009 - 6:59am
TriQuint Semiconductor introduces two driver amplifiers, including the optical communications market's first surface-mount technology (SMT) device for next-generation 40Gb/s networks. This high-performance device will ease assembly and significantly reduce power consumption as designers address the need for faster, more economical networks. TriQuint also released a smaller driver amplifier with improved performance for the 10Gb/s optical communications market. The TGA4943-SL is the first to combine multiple amplifiers and filters within a surface mount package, providing designers easier assembly for 40Gb/s optical networks. Optimized to work with major manufacturers' optical modulators, TriQuint's new driver amplifier provides convenience and performance advantages including high output drive capability, desirable edge rates and impressive signal-to-noise ratio for a cleaner signal.
