For telecommunications applications, Multiplex Inc. has unveiled an electroabsorption-modulated laser module in a 21-pin butterfly package. The MTX510EW 21-type has radio- frequency input pins on the rear of the module, which eliminates the need for 90° routing in transponder applications. It includes an internal laser driver integrated circuit, a dual-photodiode-type wavelength sensor and a back-facet power monitor. The device has applications in thermally fine-tuned ITU grid fixed-channel matching and electronically tunable fast ITU channel switching. The 510EW series operates at 10 Gb/s for OC-192 and metro transmissions. The 21-type is available for 12.5 Gb/s as an option.
