VI Systems offers a driver IC for optical modulators which are designed for data rates of up to 56 Gbit/s non-return-to zero (NRZ) at 3 V modulation voltage. The IC is the first generation of ultrahigh-speed driver IC in SiGe BiCMOS technology.

The target applications are in silicon photonic and integrated optoelectronic solutions for short and medium reach optical data transmission in datacentres and high performance computers. The driver IC is designed for the use in high speed optical transmitters with serial data rates of up to 56 Gbit/s. The device is capable to modulate at very high frequencies with single ended input voltage swing of 259 mVpp.
