Paper Abstract

The recent activity in transceiver and transponder multi-source agreements has led to smaller, cost efficient modules to enable telecom and datacom systems in many different applications. At data rates of 10Gb/sec these applications can be include transmission distances < 100m or greater than 80km. The transmitter optical engines which go into these products must meet many constraints in terms of performance, cost, size and manufacturability. This paper will identify some of the key design issues engineers must address and potential solutions for those issues.
