Optical module

Block diagram


Integrated circuits and reference designs help you create a smaller and faster optical module design used in high-bandwidth data communication applications. Whether you are creating a 100-Gbps or 400-Gbps, small form-factor pluggable (SFP) module, SFP+ transceiver, XFP module, CFP, X2/XENPAK module or other advanced fiberoptic module, we have the right ingredients to help you deliver what is next in 5G.

Design requirements:

Modern optical module designs often require:

  • Reduced power consumption to control and limit module temperature rise.
  • Dynamic and precise control of laser diodes to regulate output power.
  • Accurate photodiode-based light sensing and biasing.
