The HXT8212 VCSEL driver array is a key component for compact, robust, low-power optical transmitter modules. In conjunction with the VCSEL array, the chip handles the complete digital-to-optical conversion, including CML input, laser driver, drive control, and supervision. Standard silicon technology and a small number of additional components allow for cost-effective and compact assemblies.
- Low power consumption of 113mW per channel while delivering 5mA average and 5mA modulation current
- Compatible with common cathode and isolated VCSEL arrays
- 2-wire interface control and symmetric pad design maximize module design flexibility
- Up to 10mA average and 10mA modulation current
- QSFP MSA compliant
