Sample Optical Power Link Budget
optical link budget issues
Optical Link Budget Issues
  • Choose only components that will achieve Gb Ethernet compliant data rates.
  • What is the range of output currents from the laser driver?
  • What is the slope efficiency and min/max output from the VCSEL?
  • What are the fiber and connector losses?
  • What is the total input power to the PD?
  • What is the responsivity of the PD?
  • What is the dark current of the PD?
  • What is the max PD input power?
  • What is the min/max PD output current such that the receiver operates?
  • What is the capacitance of the PD? (this needs to be matched to the receiver to achieve Gb Ethernet compliant data rates).
optical packaging issues
Optical Packaging Issues
  • Alignment tolerance and power dissipation directly affect the cost of the module. Consider these issues when specifying the VCSEL, PD, and fiber.
  • Alignment tolerance: maximize the alignment tolerance (how much the fiber/VCSEL and fiber/PD can be misaligned, yet still get a Gb Ethernet compliant eye)
    • Evaluate the effect of the VCSEL aperture and divergence angle
    • Evaluate the effect of the MMF (multimode fiber) core diameter and numerical aperture (NA)
    • Evaluate the effect of the PD responsivity and aperture
  • Power dissipation: minimize the power dissipation (run the optical link at the lowest power possible, and with the least power dissipation, yet still get a Gb Ethernet compliant eye)
    • Evaluate the effect of the VCSEL slope efficiency
    • Evaluate the effect of the PD responsivity
  • Note: the bandwidth/distance product for 50 mm diameter core MMF is larger than for 62.5 mm diameter core fiber. We will use 62.5 mm MMF in this class
