The V980-6GXA-1TGA from Inneos is a 6 Gbps VCSEL Laser Diode that operates at a wavelength of 980 nm. It delivers an optical output power of 1.6 mW with a slope efficiency of 0.5-0.75 mW/mA. This single-channel top-emitting laser diode has a spectral width of 0.4 nm and a minimum small signal bandwidth of 4.5 GHz with a beam divergence half-angle of 16 degrees. It requires a DC supply of 2-3.3 V and consumes 3 mA of current. This laser diode has a reverse voltage of up to 8 V and requires 0.7 mA of threshold current. It is available in a package that measures 250 x 250 x 200 microns and is ideal for harsh environment sensors, transmitter optical sub-assemblies and wide-temperature transceivers in automotive, industrial and aerospace applications.
