Optical Module Combines NRZ/RZ Converter, Modulator and Driver

The iT6130 optical driver assembly from iTerra Comm-unications brings togeth-er a monolithic GaAs NRZ-to-RZ signal con-verter and a FET travel-ing-wave modulator driv-er in either module form with SMA connectors or as a small surface-mount package. The device is the first to inte- grate and optimize the two functions in a sin-gle package, which eliminates the need for device selection, tuning, and matching. This, of course, can save significant time in design and development.
