Keeping optical power constant during temperature changes and over the device’s lifetime, Micrel’s SY88212L laser diode driver includes automatic power control with fault indicator, TXenable/disable, and a power-monitoring pin. The 24-pin 4-mm2 MLF-packaged device can deliver modulation current up to 85 mA, bias current up to 70 mA, and is suitable for both AC- and DC-coupled laser interfaces. Suitable for small form-factor products and designs, the single-supply, 3.3-V laser driver targets datacom and telecom applications, including FC, GbE, SONET, OC3/12/24/48 and SDH, STM 1/4/8 with data rates up to 2.5 Gbit/s. Pricing starts at $3.00 for 1K quantity.
