The company has announced the integration of a photodetector into the Mach-10 12.5Gbps intensity modulator product, eliminating the requirement for an external fiber splice for power monitoring and bias control functions.

The modulator can be used for OC-192/STM-16 transport applications running standard SONET/SDH rates, as well as for WDM systems that transmit at 10Gbps. It can also be used for undersea communication facilities, Internet routing interface, and high-speed test equipment.

The hermetically-packaged devices operate from 1,525nm to 1,605nm and features an insertion loss of <5dB and a return loss of <-40dB. The device operates from an input power of 50mW at a temperature of 0C to 70C.
