7 February 2012 Commercial VCSELs and VCSEL arrays designed for FDR (14 Gbps) optical links

Philips recently released a new VCSEL and photodiode product family for the fast growing FDR InfiniBandTM generation. In this work we review the influence of production process variations on VCSEL characteristics, the FDR VCSEL transmission behavior as well as wear-out reliability characteristics. Data collected during an initial 15 wafers pilot production batch verify that FDR VCSEL manufacturing reached mature volume production level. The VCSEL for the next EDR (26Gbps) InfiniBandTM generation is currently being developed at Philips. The paper presents characteristics of the first EDR VCSEL iteration.
