The Model 5885 modulator driver from Picosecond Pulse Labs (PPL) Inc. is intended to drive LiNbO3 modulators at data rates of up to 43Gbps and requires 400mV of input signal to produce wide-open eye patterns with 7.7V amplitude.

It also includes an output power detector and incorporates internal circuitry making it insensitive to power supply application sequence.

The company also announced the release of the Model 5887 broadband linear amplifier intended to amplify signals with a minimum amount of distortion. It can also be used as a general-purpose broadband linear amplifier or as a linear gain block in applications such as 40Gbps fiber-optic receiver channels.

The device is claimed to demonstrate gain flatness and low deviation from linear phase while providing a bandwidth of 15kHz to 60GHz.
