General Description

The HMC6620BG is a dual channel driver amplifier designed for 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps Mach-Zehnder optical modulator driver applications. Features such as high gain across a wide frequency range, low power dissipation, very compact size, integrated peak detector function, fast rise/fall time, and integrated bias-T inductor make the HMC6620BG a best-in-class product.

The driver provides 8Vpp saturated output swing and features output swing cross point adjustment. There are only 4 DC control signals required to tune the crossing and output RF amplitude. The integrated bias-tee eliminates the need for external coils and simplifies the PCB design, also lowering cost.

HMC6620BG has a wide supply (Vdd) operating range from +5V to +7V, and the RF I/Os are internally matched to 50 Ohms. HMC6620BG provides Long Haul designers with scalable power dissipation for varying output drive requirements. (1.4W per channel at Vout = 8Vpp and 1.0W per channel at Vout = 7Vpp) Integrated peak-detect feature as a part of the MZ modulator bias loop enables the output swing (Vπ) stability of LiNOb3 modulator for calibration and field monitoring.
