A 28Gb/s transceiver with chirp-managed EDC for DML systems

Directly modulated lasers (DMLs) are widely employed in medium-reach optical links owing to their simplicity and cost effectiveness. However, the chirp phenomenon under direct modulation limits the reach (2–10km) in a standard single-mode fiber (SMF). Although diverse optical-domain chirp-management techniques have been studied [1], excessive cost and… CONTINUE READING
