Abstract: In an effort to provide a breakthrough in next-generation fiber optic data links, a new type of optoelectronic package has been developed using ceramic BGA technology (OptoBGA TM) . In this paper, it is described how the OptoBGA TM has adequate electrical performance meeting OC-192 or other 10Gbs transmission specifications. For demonstration, a 10G serial transmitter is designed and tested to achieve sufficient electrical eye opening of LD driver output when compared to its specifications (LD driver - pulse transient time 35ps, Imod = 100mA, 20 - 80%).
