Paper Abstract

We present a Forward Error Correction (FEC) - assisted, 56 Gbaud PAM4 optical link having error free performance with adequate link margin of better than 6 dB. The link was formed by driving a 1550 nm Externally Modulated Laser (EML) with a commercial PAM4 transceiver chip. The optical signal was transmitted over various link lengths of dispersion compensated fiber, fed to a low-noise Linear InGaAs Photoreceiver having Automatic Gain Control (AGC), and routed back to the PAM4 transceiver chip with ADC & DSP capability. Real time bit error rate measurements demonstrate the advantage of employing linear receivers having AGC.
