Fibre optic active components and devices – Performance standards – Part 2: 850 nm discrete vertical cavity surface emitting laser devices
|Publication Date:||1 May 2014|
|ICS Code (Fibre optic interconnecting devices):||33.180.20|
This part of IEC 62149 covers the performance specification for 850-nm discrete vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) devices of transverse multimode types used for fibre optic telecommunication and optical data transmission applications. The performance standard contains a definition of the product performance requirements together with a series of sets of tests and measurements with clearly defined conditions, severities, and pass/fail criteria. The tests are intended to be run on a "once-off" basis to prove any product's ability to satisfy the performance standard's requirements.
A product that has been shown to meet all the requirements of a performance standard can be declared as complying with the performance standard, but should then be controlled by a quality assurance/quality conformance program.
Depending on the modulation speeds, sub-categorized specifications are defined. Types A1, A2, A3 and A4 correspond to 1,25 Gbit/s, 2,5 Gbit/s, 4,25 Gbit/s and 10 Gbit/s VCSELs, respectively.
Each sub-categorized specification is also defined by separate details depending on the device types, such as specifications for a VCSEL device without a monitor photodiode (case a) and for a VCSEL device with a monitor photodiode (case b).
