Intensity Modulator, 40G, Powerbit SD-40

This leading edge 40G intensity modulator is a key building block for next generation optical communication networks. The unique x-cut, zero-chirp modulator enables leading uncompensated transmission distances, and high channel counts in long- and ultra-long-haul DWDM networks. Chirp-free signal generation provides high dispersion tolerance and minimum channel crosstalk. LiNbO3 is also the technology of choice when optimum transmission quality is required on shorter reaches. Advanced process technologies are applied to achieve maximum feasible electro-optic bandwidth while maintaining the low drive voltage and low insertion loss of classical x-cut modulators. Well matched driver amplifiers are available through Lumentum recommended partners.
