70 GHz Balanced High-speed Photodetector


High-Speed Detectors and Receivers

The BPDV3120R balanced photodetector consists of two 75 GHz waveguide-integrated photodiodes on one single chip. As a single-balanced photodetector the configuration ensures excellent uniformity of the paired photodiodes and their integrated biasing network. Due to optimized alignment of the waveguide and photodiode design, a linear frequency response is guaranteed even at high optical powers. An integrated 50Ω termination allows excellent matching with the electrical output signal. Tailored configurations are available, e.g. BPDV dual pair and quad sets, including fiber matching and optical connector customization.
