40G Receivers

The GT40-7002RX is a wide-bandwidth 40GBits/s reciever designed for use in transponder modules and test equipment for fiber optic transmission systems such as SDH STM-256 and SONET OC-768. It incorporates a high speed PIN diode and a low noise InP HBT transimpedance amplifier with a integrated limiting amplifier. The photoreceiver module features high differential gain of typically 1200 V/W and a bandwidth of 35 GHz.
