The Oclaro APD chip is an Indium Phosphide (InP) based device designed for high performance telecoms receiver applications up to 11.3Gb/s. The optical signal is received via top illumination of the central active region through a ring shaped contact which provides a 30μm aperture.
A reverse electrical bias is applied across the active region by the P (anode) and N (cathode) contacts. The circular P bond pad has a diameter of 70μm suitable for wirebonding.
The APD is suitable for operation at up to 11.3Gb/s at a multiplication gain factor between M3 and M10.
