10.3125-Gbps SFP+ LR reference design evaluation board
This product has been released to the market and is available for purchase. For some products, newer alternatives may be available.
Our evaluation board for the 10.3125-Gbps SFP+ LR reference design was designed to show the optical performance of the ONET1151L laser driver, the ONET8551T high-gain transimpedance amplifier (TIA) and the ONET1151P limiting amplifier.
The ONET1151L is used to drive a 1310-nm DFB laser in an LC transmit optical sub-assembly (TOSA). The ONET1151P is used to amplify the signal from the PIN-TIA LC receive optical sub-assembly (ROSA) which contains the ONET8551T TIA. An MSP430FR5728 microcontroller (MCU) is used to control the setup of the ONET1151L and ONET1151P in conjunction with a graphical user interface (GUI). The MSP430™ MCU also stores the register settings in FRAM. The TPS82693 high-efficiency MicroSiP step-down converter is used to supply 2.85 V to the ICs to decrease the module power dissipation.
This design is a functional SFP+ module used to show the performance of the transmitter and receiver. Digital diagnostics and temperature compensation of the laser driver modulation current are not included.
- Enables <1-W 10GBASE-LR SFP+ transceiver
- Decreased component power consumption (<1 W)
- Low power supply voltage (2.85 V)
- High mask margin for both receiver and transmitter
- Decreases customer evaluation time
- Includes SFP+ host board and user-friendly GUI
