NOVEMBER 12, 2007 -- Hamamatsu Photonics (search for Hamamatsu) have introduced the new G10447 series of 10-Gbit/sec GaAs PIN photodiode receivers mounted in industry standard ROSA packages.

The G10447 series feature a very high-speed response of up to 12 GHz, making them suitable for a variety of short-distance, high-speed data transmission applications such as 10-Gigabit Ethernet, high-speed storage area networks (Fibre Channel), and optical interconnect applications, according to the company.

The ROSA package is compatible with industry-standard 10-Gbit/sec devices such as XMD-MSA and is suitable for use in XFP transceivers. The G10447 is designed to operate at low voltage (3.3 V) and provides a differential output signal, thus providing increased sensitivity and dynamic range from + 2 dBm to �13.5 dBm for all 10-Gbit/sec applications.
