CODEON introduces optical modulator controller

Sept. 25, 2001--CODEON Corporation, a designer and manufacturer of modulators, optical transponder components and modules for the fiber optic telecommunications industry, has expanded its Mach-10 product line.

CODEON Corporation, a designer and manufacturer of modulators, optical transponder components and modules for the fiber optic telecommunications industry, has expanded its Mach-10 product line with the addition of the Modulator Controller. The Modulator Controller is a unique device combining a 12.5 Gb/s modulator driver with advanced bias control, dither, and power conditioning circuitry. The integration of these functions into one value-added sub-assembly provides significant space and power reductions for transponder board designs.

CODEON is enabling system OEMs to minimize transponder board space and power consumption by integrating essential control functions with the modulator driver.

The Mach-10 Optical Modulator Controller combines high-reliability packaging technology with microwave technology to provide a high-quality, low jitter, non-inverting output voltage to drive external optical modulators. The Optical Modulator Controller includes key functions such as modulator bias control, power sequencing or monitoring, and gain control.

Though ideally matched with the Mach-10 Intensity Modulator, the Modulator Controller will work with any commercially available external modulator.

The Optical Modulator Controller will be sampling in the 4th quarter of 2001 with commercial availability in early 2002.

CODEON will be exhibiting at ECOC in booth #102 -- Harbour Hall.
