New Product aXMD2150

aXMD2150 Broadband Optical Modulator

 

The aXMD2150 is a compact, high-performance electro-optic modulator based on gallium arsenide (GaAs) guided-wave technology. It is ideal for broadband digital and analogue applications from DC to 60GHz where space and weight are at a premium. This linear Mach Zehnder device combines market leading performance in bandwidth and drive-power with a compact folded-optics configuration, which segregates RF and optical interfacing to opposing ends and helps preserve integrity of the RF feed.  The GaAs chip at the heart of the unit is fabricated using industry-standard high-volume foundry processes, and features (in common with other GaAs devices) a high degree of environmental stability, eliminating the need for temperature control. 

Features

  

  • Low size weight and power
  • Compact folded optical configuration
  • Flat frequency response to 50 GHz
  • Linear electro-optic response
  • RF drive voltage (Vp) less than 5V (DC)
  • SMPM RF connector (opposite end to fibre I/O)
  • Output monitor photodiode
  • Environmentally stable and radiation tolerant
  • Negligible long-term bias-point drift
  • Temperature control not required 

Applications

  

  • Broadband digital communications (BPSK) 
  • RF over fibre
  • Phased-array antenna remoting
  • Aerospace and defense systems
  • Satellite communications
  • Free space optical links
  • High throughput satellites


New Product aXSD2050

aXSD2050 GaAs IQ Modulator

  

The aXSD2050 is a compact, high-performance electro-optic IQ modulator based on gallium arsenide (GaAs) guided-wave technology.
