MD-12-DC
12 GHz Modulator Driver w/ Adjustable DC Bias
The Optilab MD-12-DC Modulator Driver (MD) is a 12 GHz Bandwidth RF Amplifier in a compact and userfriendly module that provides a high-quality, single-ended voltage to drive an external LiNbO3 modulator.
Typical applications include driving EML, EAM, and Mach-Zehnder devices, and it can also be used as a
wideband RF amplifier with useable bandwidth of up to 12 GHz, including its +26 dBm adjustable output,
making it suitable for many RF link applications. The MD-12-DC amplifies 12.5 Gb/s data input signals to
>7.5 Vp-p drive levels, and the flat gain and group delay response yield a high quality, low-jitter electrical drive
signal for digital applications. Featuring a 12 V DC power supply, this versatile module also has an anodized,
precision-machined aluminum housing designed for efficient heat dissipation during prologned use. In
addition to its amplfication function, the MD-12-DC also features a manually adjustable DC bias output
voltage port, to further compliement its effectiveness when used with a standard LiNbO3 external modulator.
