Status: In Production
The SY88973BL low-power, limiting post amplifier is designed for use in fiber optic receivers. The device connects to typical transimpedance amplifiers (TIAs). The linear signal output from TIAs can contain significant amounts of noise and may vary in amplitude over time. The SY88973BL quantizes these signals and outputs typically 800mVPP voltage-limited waveforms.
The SY88973BL operates from a single +3.3V± 10% power supply, over an industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. With its wide bandwidth and high gain, signals with data rates up to 3.2Gbps and as small as 10mVPP can be amplified to drive devices with CML inputs or AC-coupled PECL inputs.
The SY88973BL incorporates a loss-of-signal (LOS), open-collector TTL output with external 4.75kΩ to 10kΩ pull-up resistor. A programmable, loss-of-signal level-set pin (LOSLVL) sets the sensitivity of the input amplitude detection. LOS asserts high if the input amplitude falls below the threshold sets by LOSLVL and de-asserts low otherwise. LOS can be fed back to the enable (/EN) input to maintain output stability under a loss-of-signal condition. /EN de-asserts the true output signal without removing the input signal. Typically, 4.6dB LOS hysteresis is provided to prevent chattering.
