Paper Abstract

We are discussing design issues and measurement results for a new type of VCSEL based small form factor low cost optical front end (OFE). The optical interface of the OFE is a duplex LC receptacle. Mechanical, optical and electrical design restrictions are considered. High speed VCSEL biasing, the driver-VCSEL interface, influence of misalignment on RF performance, general requirements for serial 10Gb/s transceivers are main topics. Measurements of transmitter and receiver eye diagrams including a commercially available driver are presented.
