HFRD-29.11: Dual-Rate (1.25Gbps/10.3125Gbps) VCSEL Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) Transceiver
Abstract: High-Frequency Reference Design (HFRD-29.11) is a complete optical transceiver targeted for the small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) Multisource Agreement (MSA) market and other high-speed optical-transceiver applications. The MAX3799 is a cost-effective solution for an SFP+ dual-rate transceiver. Combining the VCSEL driver and limiting amplifier into a single, 5mm x 5mm package reduces cost without compromising performance. Mask margins in excess of 40% at 10.3125Gbps are achievable. The HFRD-29.11 transceiver reduces design time for SFP+ and other optical transmitters by providing the schematics, PC-board layout, Gerber files, and bill of materials. The module is provided with some basic firmware and a graphical user interface (GUI) to demonstrate the operation of the MAX3799. Test data and typical performance from an assembled board also aid in evaluating this reference design.
