Silicon Photonics: Past, Current and Future

By Sunil Priyadarshi and Sanjeev Gupta

Optoelectronic industry designers have traditionally used discrete optical devices for transceiver designs. The process requires manual integration of discrete free-space optical components such as lasers, modulator, photo detectors, isolators, MUX/DE-MUX, lenses in the form of optical gold box sub-assemblies such as transmit optical sub-assembly (TOSA). 


Using a VNA for Power Plane Impedance Analysis

By Brian Walker

Understanding how to make and interpret power supply impedance is very useful for optimized, low noise power supply design. With a simple pair of homemade probes, it’s easy to make the measurements using a compact VNA. Read on to find out how.
