Two amplifier designs, the ATA7603 and ALA7606, have been unleashed for OC-192 MAN equipment architectures. The ATA7603 transimpedance amplifier provides better than 23-dB dynamic range centered from --19 to +4 dBm. The TIA also delivers more than 1800 ohms of differential impedance and a group delay of +/-15 ps.
The ALA7606 limiting amplifier is a --5.2V differential amp with 50-ohm inputs and outputs. This amplifier may be AC or DC coupled to the ATA7603, delivers a single-ended sensitivity of 56 mV peak-to-peak, and provides a typical jitter of better than 1.5 ps rms.
Both devices are developed using an InGaP HBT process.
