Laser Diode Drivers

Microchip offers a family of edge emitting (DFP/FP) lasers and surface emitting (VCSEL) drivers that cover applications such as GbE/10GbE, Sonet/SDH and Fibre Channel for data rates ranging from sub-Mbps to 10 Gbps. The drivers are designed to work with Microchip's SFF-8472 compliant FOM modules controller, MIC3003. With the limiting amplifier, Microchip's chipset solution presents an elegant, smart, low-power, small-footprint solution for SFF/SFP/SFP+ modules.
