The BPDV3120R is a balanced photodetector offering a 3 dB bandwidth of 70 GHz. The optical front end consists of a monolithic balanced photodetector chip with on-chip biasing. The coaxial single-ended output can detect up to 64 GBaud polarization diversity x-QAM signals. The device supports systems for next-generation networks using 400 Gbit/s or 1 Tbit/s coherent detection-based optical transmission.
