Paper Abstract

As the telecommunications and data communications marketplaces demand higher rates of information transfer, the need for high performance optical transmitter and receiver components becomes clear. High performance integrated optical transmitter and receiver products that span the spectrum of data rates from 20 Mb/s to in excess of 600 Mb/s will be presented. All components are available utilizing long wavelength LED or laser source and PINFET detector technology. The DTLtm product series is comprised of transmitters and receivers paired as data links. All electronic functions are integrated into custom bipolar silicon integrated circuits. The optical components are 1300 nm light emitting diodes and PIN photodiode detectors (short wavelength versions are available as options). Three data link products are currently available: DTL-13-50: 20 to 50 Mb/s Manchester coded with both ECL data and clock at the receiver output DTL-13-125: Up to 125 Mb/s NRZ operation for transmission of ECL data signal only DTL-13-200: Up to 200 Mb/s NRZ operation for transmission of ECL data signal only For higher data rates, a series of 1300 nm or 1550 nm laser transmitters and PINFET receivers is under development. Currently available is the DTX-13-417 1300 nm laser transmitter, suitable for 417 Mb/s NRZ operation. A 565 Mb/s transmitter, the DTX-13/15-565, at either 1300 nm or 1550 nm is being developed. The complementary PINFET receiver products for 417 and 565 Mb/s operations, are also being developed. All of the DTX/DRX series are available in compact modular packaging, with fiber pigtails for easy coupling to the transmission fiber. An option for design as a standard line card is also available.
