BOOKHAM AT10XGC

Data Sheet
High Sensitivity 10Gb/s surface mount
coplanar APD preamp receiver
AT10XGC
The AT10XGC receiver consists of an avalanche photodiode,
a low-noise preamplifier and a precision NTC thermistor in a
hermetic coplanar packagewith a connectorized single-mode
fiber pigtail. Differential outputs are provided to improve noise
rejection for enhanced sensitivity. It has been optimised for
use in 10Gb/s metro or long-haul applications, either as a
discrete device or within a transponder, using NRZ
modulation, with or without FEC, at data rates up
to 10.709Gb/s.
Features:
• High sensitivity, -28.5dBm typical
• Low capacitance high speed
InGaAs APD photodetector
• Supports FEC rates up to 10.709Gb/s
• Best in class power consumption, only 300mW
• Designed to exceed the environmental requirements
of Telcordia GR-468-CORE
• RoHS 5/6 compliant
Applications:
• Client or line side links
• 300 pin LR transponder applications
• Yellow fiber pigtail for MSA compliance

[2] The rating is referred to the ambient temperature.
[3] VAPD · VM3. Although implementation of a current limit is intuitive, it is not recommended as biasing below
the specified M = 3 voltage in the presence of a high optical power has been shown to cause device damage.
Class 2 ESD precautions must be observed when handling these devices.
