100 GHz Ultra-High Speed Balanced Photodetector


High-Speed Detectors and Receivers

The BPDV412x balanced photodetector is a compact module consisting of two optimized 100 GHz waveguide-integrated photodiodes on a single chip. As a single device, this configuration ensures excellent uniformity of the paired photodiodes performance; biasing is achieved via an integrated biasing network. Due to the optimized design of waveguide and Photodiode, even at high optical power, a linear frequency response can be guaranteed. The integrated termination allows an excellent match of the electrical output signal. Custom configurations are available, such as BPDV matched pairs, and quad sets, including connector customization and fiber matching to enable coherent detection. A 90 GHz version of this module is also available upon request.
