A new 5-pin transistor outline (TO-Can) header for conventional coaxial laser package has been proposed and demonstrated by using a three-dimensional full-wave electromagnetic simulation tool. The applicability of the simulation tool was verified by a measurement result of a conventional TO-56 header. By adopting a two-session feed-through via and a bent feed-lead, this TO-Can header has the optimal impedance for high-speed modulation. The reflection loss can be controlled beneath -10-dB before 15-GHz with a 50-Ω termination. The 3-dB modulated bandwidth with a load impedance of 5-Ω and 50-Ω is over 23-GHz and 37-GHz, respectively. This TO-Can header provides a low-cost coaxial laser package solution with widely load impedances from 5-Ω to 50-Ω and may apply in the emerging 100-Gigabits Ethernet (100GbE) and next generation Fiber Channel (20GFC) applications.
