AbstractThe objective of this Phase I SBIR proposal is to show the feasibility of integrating the key optical and electronic components of a multichannel laser modulator into a single multichip module (MCM). The module concept developed under this effort will consist of at least eight parallel channels capable of independently producing an analog amplitude modulated optical waveform. Integration will include data interface, high resolution timing control, waveform memory/buffer, digital-to-analog (DAC) converters, bias controllers, optical modulators, optical source input, and parallel optical output interface. This module will form the baseline for a both a massively parallel optical projector capable of stimulating flash-based LADAR sensors and a pluggable analog optical modulator for commercial communication applications.
