The MAX3946 is a +3.3V, multirate, low-power laser diode driver designed for Ethernet and Fibre Channel transmission systems at data rates up to 11.3Gbps. This device is optimized to drive a differential transmitter optical subassembly (TOSA) with a 25I flex circuit. The unique design of the output stage enables use of unmatched TOSAs, greatly reducing headroom limitations and lowering power consumption.
The device receives differential CML-compatible signals with on-chip line termination. It can deliver laser modulation current of up to 80mA, at an edge speed of 20ps (20% to 80%), into a 5I to 25I external differential load. The device is designed to have a symmetrical output stage with on-chip back terminations integrated into its outputs. A high-bandwidth, fully differential signal path is implemented to minimize determinist
