10-gigabit-per-second InGaAs tester for Ethernet and Fiber Channel introduced by Discovery

EWING, N.J., 13 Jan. 2012. Discovery Semiconductors Inc. in Ewing, N.J., is introducing a 10-gigabit-per-second indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) APD + TIA + CDR Lab Buddy test and measurement instrument for SONET, Ethernet, PON, and Fibre Channel applications.

Discovery also is offering its 10 GHz linear PIN + TIA and 10 gigabit-per-second high-sensitivity limiting PIN + TIA with a CDR Lab Buddy option. The O/E section provides the receive and regenerate functions, and the CDR provides the clock and data recovery function from the input signal.

Discovery’s APD + CDR Lab Buddy includes a limiting amplifier with LOS power detector, and PLL data re-timer with a LOL indicator. The Lab Buddy supports multi-rate operation from 9.5 gigabits per second thru 11.1 gigabits per second. The CDR function has a 7mVp-p Input Sensitivity and 0.6UIp-p total high-frequency jitter tolerance. The clock and data outputs are compatible with BER test stations.

The APD + CDR Lab Buddy also has a programmable bias voltage source and a built-in temperature controller for improved gain stabilization and increased reliability. The bias and temperature can be set either from the front panel or via a remote computer interface. The APD + CDR Lab Buddy monitors the bias, temperature, and average DC photocurrent of the APD in real-time.
