Innovative Processing AG (IPAG), manufacturer of monolithically integrated high-speed communication components, today released new high-speed Indium Phosphide (InP)-based PIN diodes with bandwidths higher than 100 GHz.

The latest IPD48 chips are part of IPAG's product line of ultra high-speed components, designed for application within high bit rate opto-electronic receivers for SONET/SDH and Ethernet applications. According to the company, optical network manufacturers deploying optical transceivers can now offer their customers enhanced system performance, including increased transmission speed of 43 Gbits/sec or 51 Gbits/sec (NRZ and RZ) for forward error correction (FEC) or SuperFEC.

Moreover, due to the distinct phase linearity, the high-bandwidth IPD48X-80Z PIN is suitable for on-wafer calibration for on-wafer lightwave component testing up to 80GHz.

The IPD48 features high bandwidth up to 100 GHz (-3 dB), high optical power (+6 dBm), low bias voltage (less than 2 V for 80 GHz PIN), low leakage current, optional on-chip biasing, and customizable layouts. Sample quantities of the chip are available now for testing.
