Data Sheet 2.5 Gb/s CWDM Buried Het Laser 80Km reach LC25WC This laser module provides a fast route to CWDM by providing a drop in replacement on existing TDM or WDM circuit packs with minimum redesign and verification work. The product employs the Bookham strained layer MQW Buried Heterostructure DFB laser chip, and has been designed specifically for use in Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexed (CWDM) 2.5 Gb/s optical fibre trunk systems. The device is packaged in a hermetic 14-pin butterfly package incorporating an isolator and monitor photodiode for control of the power of the laser over life and all operating conditions. The device is available with a number of power options depending on application and link span requirements. Features: • Drop in replacement onto TDM and WDM card • 2.5 Gb/s operation • Up to 10mW optical output power available • Narrow spectral line-width • Internal TEC with precision NTC thermistor for temperature control • 1470nm to 1610nm at 20nm compliant to ITU G.694.2 • Code reduction with single product for reaches up to 80km • GaInAsP SLMQW DFB single frequency laser chip • InGaAs monitor photodiode • Hermetically sealed 14-pin butterfly package with optical isolator • RoHS compliant Applications: • CWDM metro 1 Data Sheet Parameters Parameter Conditions Min Threshold current (Ith) Slope efficiency by product 2 mW 3 mW 4 mW 10 mW RF input reflection coef (S11) Typ Max Unit 10 22 mA 0.04 0.06 0.08 0.143 0.09 0.13 0.17 0.43  Forward voltage 1.3 Channel wavelengths available ITU G.694.2 1470 Peak wavelength for channel  λp-4nm Dispersion penalty at 80 km  Time averaged spectral linewidth λp -20 dB 0.1 Side-mode suppression 30 Optical rise/fall time Monitor photo current -10 dB 1.8 V 1610 nm λp+4nm nm 2 dB 0.6 nm 40  50 250 Monitor dark current Thermistor resistance dB 125 ps 1200 µA 100 nA 10 Heatpump current 70°C case temperature Heatpump voltage kΩ 600 900 mA 70°C case temperature 1.0 2.4 V 20 to 35 0.09 Change of λp with laser temp. 250 mW/mA nm/°C  50 Ω measurement system, f = dc - 3 GHz.

Standard product dispersion penalty will be compliant to the specified link length of 80 km using an extinction ratio of 10 dB. Fibre dispersion characteristics are derived from the following equation 4 So λ D(λ ) = (λ − 03 ) ps /(nm.km) 4 λ Where So = 0.092 ps/(nm2.km) and λ = 1302 nm.

Outline Drawing and Pinout Information Dimensions (mm) Figure 1: Outline Drawing and Pinout Information. 3 Data Sheet Instructions for Use – LC25WC Pin 1 and Pin 2 Thermistor The thermistor is used in a control loop in conjunction with the thermo-electric cooler to maintain the laser submount temperature at the required value for wavelength. Operating current should be less than 100 µA to prevent self-heating errors. Pin 3 Laser DC bias (-) Laser bias current (negative with respect to package ground) is applied via this pin which forms one side of the bias-T connection to the laser cathode. Pin 4 Monitor anode, Pin 5 Monitor cathode The back facet monitor provides a mean power reference for the laser and is normally operated with a 5 V reverse bias. Pin 6 TEC (+), Pin 7 TEC (-) Applying a positive voltage on pin 6 with respect to pin 7 will cause the internal submount to be cooled relative to the case temperature. Reversing the polarity will raise the submount temperature relative to the case. The TEC supply should be capable of delivering up to 0.9 A at 2.4 V. Pin 8, 9, 11, 13 Case ground These pins must be grounded in all applications. Pin 10 This pin is not connected. It should be grounded if possible. Pin 12 Laser modulation (-) The data input (modulation current) is applied via this pin which is a nominal 25 Ohm impedance coplanar line. For 10mW applications the end of life modulation current is 90mA. For all other applications 60mA maximum modulation current should be provisioned. Pin 14 N/C This pin is not connected. It should be grounded if possible.
