Analog Devices is introducing the first device to combine avalanche photodiode (APD) bias control and current monitoring on a single chip for space-constrained optical transceiver modules.

Analog Devices is introducing the first device to combine avalanche photodiode (APD) bias control and current monitoring on a single chip for space-constrained optical transceiver modules For optical network designers who need to ensure the responsivity of a temperature-sensitive APD, the ADL5317 accurately sets the bias voltage over a 6 to 72V range, while simultaneously monitoring current over a six-decade range
