We present an efficient and compact (5 X 10 X 1.8 cm3) Er:doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) module pumped with a 980 nm laser diode. We showed that this EDFA module is capable of operating with optimum gain and noise performance over a 30 nm bandwidth at 1550 nm, and with low electrical consumption (less than 100 mW). Using the EDFA as a rack mounted preamplifier module in a 2.5 Gbit/s direct detection system experiment, we achieved a -38.5 dBm receiver sensitivity at 10-10 bit error rate, and demonstrated long term operation (BER of 6.10-14) of the overall system.
