Narda Press Release - November 11, 2009

Narda Unveils DQPSK Modulator Driver
for 40 and 100 Gb/s Lightwave Systems

Outlines roadmap for complete family of modulator drivers for next-generation networks

Click to visit the Narda websiteNarda Unveils DQPSK Modulator Driver for 40 and 100 Gb/s Lightwave SystemsHAUPPAUGE, NY – November 11, 2009 - Narda, an L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) company, today introduced the Model FO-MDA-20-25DD-1, a dual-channel DQPSK modulator driver for 40-Gb/s and 100-Gb/s optical transponder applications that has been tested at data rates as high as 113 Gb/s, demonstrating excellent performance even at the highest data rates.

The FO-MDA-20-25DD-1 is designed to interface with a Sierra Monolithics SMI 4025 DQPSK multiplexer/clock multiplier unit on the input and an Avanex Mach-Zehnder lithium-niobate MZ DQPSK modulator at its output. However, other models are available with a different pitch of its output connectors so the unit can also be specified for other modulators, including those from Fujitsu. It integrates a separate channel for I and Q signals within its 36 x 28 x 8 mm package and uses GPPO connectors.

Narda is a member of the 100G Optical Networking Consortium at Georgia Institute of Technology, which allowed comprehensive measurements to be made in both simulated and real system environments. The FO-MDA-20-25DD-1 has a maximum data rate of 35 Gb/s, 30 dB of gain per channel, and output of more than 8 Vpp. It is based on a new, cost-effective MMIC chip set developed by Narda specifically for DPSK/DQPSK applications. The current driver is housed in a metal enclosure and later versions will include surface-mountable packages tailored for high-volume production and fabricated using a low-cost PTFE microwave laminate as the packaging material.

Future configurations tailored for 100-Gb/s operation include a module that will integrate all four data drivers for PD-DQPSK configuration into a single surface-mount package and can optionally include a carver clock driver as well.

The FO-MDA-20-25DD-1 joins Narda’s growing family of products for lightwave systems, including, clock oscillators, phase-locked oscillators, lithium niobate and electro-absorptive modulator driver amplifiers, and pulse carver drivers.

Engineering samples of the FO-MDA-20-25DD-1 are expected to available in the first quarter of 2010.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
