The SL88002 is a multi-rate VCSEL driver optimized for
POF (Polymer Optical Fiber) and PCS (Polymer Clad Silica) fiber related
data transport applications with respect to various transmission
The driver is designed in standard CMOS, operates from a single 3.3 V
power supply, and supports data rates between 10 Mb/s and 1.5 Gbps.
The ultra-low power consumption of only 8 mW makes it possible to use
the SL88002 in a single-package VCSEL/VCSEL-driver hybrid design
The SL88002 can be dc coupled to the VCSEL, thereby eliminating the need
for any bias filters and saving costs. The VCSEL-driver operates over a
-40 to +125 șC temperature range.
To facilitate assembly in small form factor packages the SL88002
integrates all necessary functions on chip. Except for two external
resistors, which define the I0-current and modulation current, no
external components are needed to operate the driver.
