MD-12-DC 12 GHz Modulator Driver
The Optilab MD-12-DC 12 GHz Modulator Driver is a 12 GHz RF Amplifier in a compact and user- friendly module that provides a high-quality, single-ended voltage to drive an external LiNbO3 modulator. It can also be used as a wideband RF amplifier with useable bandwidth of up to 12 GHz, including its +26 dBm adjustable output, making it suitable for many RF link applications. The MD-12-DC amplifies 12.5 Gb/s data input signals to >7.5 Vp-p drive levels, and the at gain and group delay response yield a high quality, low-jitter electrical drive signal for digital applications.
Featuring a 12 V DC power supply, this 12 GHz Modulator Driver also has an anodized, precision-machined aluminum housing designed for efficient heat dissipation during prolonged use. In addition to its amplification function, the MD-12-DC also features a manually adjustable DC bias output voltage port, to further compliment its effectiveness when used with a standard LiNbO3 external modulator.
