2016lwia 3 5 4cThe TGA4851-SL 100Gbps CFP QSFP28 Quad Channel driver amplifier is designed to deliver multi-channel, low-power consumption options that reduce cost and enable market-leading channel-to-channel isolation. The device’s reduced form factor enables maximum integration and signal fidelity for 100G data center applications.

The TGA4851-SL is available in a compact SMT package supporting both CFPx and QFSP28 reduced form factor standards (3.75x7.52x.70 mm). It offers 11 dB of gain, 1.5 V output power, and 3 dB bandwidth of 25 GHz. Additionally, the driver has extremely low power consumption of 125 mW – 150 mW.

Other performance parameters include:

  • Additive RMS jitter: 600 fs
  • Variable output swing: 1.5 V – 3 Vpp
  • Rise/fall time: 12.5 ps.
