20 GHz Ultra-High Power Photodetector
The VPDV2120 is a very compact, hermetically packaged, optical detector module with an ultra-high RF output power of >22dBm at a frequency of 10GHz. It offers a high responsivity of 0.55A/W (1550nm) and a very high saturation photocurrent of 150mA @10GHz. The device exhibits a high linearity with typical OIP3 values above 30dBm at a frequency of 10GHz and doesn’t require any cooling. The device is using a modified uni-travelling carrier (MUTC) photodetector chip. The VPDV2120 is not matched to 50Ω. For applying a bias voltage of -6V, an external bias-Tee is required.
