The ADN2870 laser diode driver is designed for advanced SFP
and SFF modules, using SFF-8472 digital diagnostics. The device
features dual-loop control of the average power and extinction
ratio, which automatically compensates for variations in laser
characteristics over temperature and aging. The laser need only
be calibrated at 25°C, eliminating the need for expensive and
time consuming temperature calibration. The ADN2870 supports
single-rate operation from 50 Mbps to 3.3 Gbps or multirate
from 155 Mbps to 3.3 Gbps.
Average power and extinction ratio can be set with a voltage
provided by a microcontroller DAC or by a trimmable resistor.
The part provides bias and modulation current monitoring as
well as fail alarms and automatic laser shutdown. The device
interfaces easily with the ADI ADuC70xx family of micro-
converters and with the ADN289x family of limiting amplifiers
to make a complete SFP/SFF transceiver solution. An SFP
reference design is available. The product is available in a space-
saving 4 mm ×4 mm LFCSP package specified over the −40°C to
+85°C temperature range.
