The XPDV2320R photodetector is designed to exhibit an optimized frequency response in both power and phase. It is ideally suited for OC-768/STM-256 long haul systems. The high power capability of up to 10 dBm allows for use of optical amplification at the detector input, and results in a high output voltage swing of up to 1V avoiding the need for electrical amplification. The photodetector is optimized for dual operations at 1310 nm and 1550 nm.
A waveguide integrated pin diode provides an excellent linearity, high responsivity and a superior flatness of the RF response. An integrated biasing guarantees a highly reliable component.
