The CGY2141UH/C1 is a distributed very wide band 43 Gb/s Electro-Absorption Modulator (EAM) / Lithium Niobate modulator driver. This device is a key component for ultra high speed optical communication systems (OC-768/STM-256) and it can also be used as a flexible, multi-purpose, very wide band gain block usable from DC to 46 GHz. This MMIC features single-ended input and output and operates with a +5.0V supply voltage via an external bias tee.
The die is manufactured using D01PH OMMIC’s 135 nm gate length pHEMT GaAs technology. The D01PH process is one of the European Space Agency (ESA) european preferred part list (EPPL) technologies.
