9.9-12.5Gb/s Optical Modulator Driver TGA4953-SCC-SL
OC-192 Metro and Long Haul Applications
Surface Mount Package
Key Features and Performance
• Metro MSA Compatible
• Wide Drive Range (3V to 10V)
• Single-ended Input / Output
• Low Power Dissipation
(1.2W at Vo = 6V)
• Very Low Rail Ripple
• 25ps Edge Rates (20/80)
• Small Form Factor
- 11.4 x 8.9 x 2 mm
- 0.450 x 0.350 x 0.080 inches
• Evaluation Board Available.
The TriQuint TGA4953-SCC-SL is part of a series of
surface mount modulator drivers suitable for a
variety ofwww.DataSheet4U.com driver applications and is compatible with
Metro MSA standards.
• Mach-Zehnder Modulator Driver for
The 4953 consists of two high performance
wideband amplifiers combined with off chip circuitry
assembled in a surface mount package. A single
4953 placed between the MUX and Optical
Modulator provides OEMs with a board level
modulator driver surface mount solution.
The 4953 provides Metro and Long Haul designers
with system critical features such as: low power
dissipation (1.1W at Vo = 6V), very low rail ripple,
high voltage drive capability at 5V bias (6 V
amplitude adjustable to 3 V), low output jitter (1ps
rms typical), and low input drive sensitivity (250mV
at Vo = 6V).
Metro and Long Haul
• IRZ & Duobinary Applications
TGA4953 Evaluation Board (Metro MSA Conditions)
10.7 Gb/s, VD = 5 V, ID = 210 mA, (Pdc = 1.1W)
VOUT = 6 VPP, CPC = 50%, VIN = 500 mVPP
Scale: 2 V/div, 15 ps/div
The 4953 requires external DC blocks, a low
frequency choke, and control circuitry.
The TGA4953-SCC-SL is available on an evaluation
RoHS compliant version available.
