New 100 Gb/s Driver is 1st to Combine Two Channels with Bias-Tees and State of the Art Channel-to-Channel Isolation

first_imgTriQuint Semiconductor Inc. has introduced the industry’s first dual-channel, surface-mount optical modulator driver that reduces bills of materials and shrinks PCB areas dedicated to optical driver functions. The new TGA4947-SL is released in conjunction with the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. TriQuint’s TGA4947-SL is designed for 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s light wave networks using DQPSK and DP-QPSK modulations, respectively. It combines two driver amplifier channels and bias-tees in a compact surface-mount (SMT) package that maintains high channel-to-channel isolation of 30dB from DC to 40 GHz. The excellent isolation provided by TriQuint’s solution is essential to reduce bit error rate impact to maintain channel performance. TriQuint’s new modulator driver offers the lowest power dissipation available, making it a ‘green’ solution that dissipates half the power of competing products (just 1.2W per channel at 6Vpp output.) The TGA4947-SL also enables a more compact optical transmitter design, a key requirement of 100 Gb/s Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) MSA standards. It enables economical surface mount assembly processes and eliminates the need for costly connectorized driver “Bricks” while enabling SMT multiplexer (MUX) modules. The new TGA4947-SL modulator driver is compatible with TriQuint’s Smart Evaluation Board (Smart EVB™) solution for simplified RF connectivity. Smart EVB’s reduce by an order of magnitude the time required to set up and operate these devices in standard RF test and optical test stations. The new TriQuint TGA4947-SL is designed to drive Mach-Zehnder modulators in optical transceivers and transponders serving metro and long-haul networks. Carriers are rapidly increasing the data rates of these networks to accommodate exponential traffic growth driven by the demand for broadband connectivity.  By combining two channels along with accompanying bias-tees in a single surface-mount package, the TGA4947-SL addresses the need to reduce network component costs through lower part counts and maintaining superior electrical characteristics. Samples and evaluation boards are available for the TGA4947-SL. Contact TriQuint for product details.last_img read more

Bacchus Bulls storm to Central E’bo T20 title

first_imgBacchus Bulls on Sunday stromed to a 70-run victory over Reliance Hustlers to take the Central Essequibo T20 championship and the $50,000 cash prize. Playing at home on the beautiful Imam Bacchus Ground under brilliant sunshine, the hosts won the toss and elected to take first strike. Bulls piled on 175-4 in their allotted overs thanks to a captain’s innings of 59 from Yougeshwar Lall. His man of the match knock saw him smashing two sixes and three fours along the way in his anchor-like innings.Lall was supported by Latchman Rohit who also stroked two sixes and three fours in his cameo of 28 as well as cameos from Navendra Persaud (33) and Neiland Cadogan (27).Hustlers most successful bowler was Anthony Ifill who took 2-30 in his four overs.  In reply, Parmesh Parsotam skittled the top order to end with 4-18 while Cadogan returned with ball in hand to take 2-15. Punraj Singh, Lallbachand Narine and Khulraj Persaud all took one wicket. Parsotam was declared the best bowler while Mark Austin was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.last_img read more
