HFAN-02.1.0: Laser Driver Parametric Calculator


This spreadsheet is designed to aid in determining the resistor values that set the operational parameterson the various Maxim laser drivers used for high-speed fiber optics communications. The driverscurrently modeled are the MAX3261, MAX3766, MAX3867-3869, and MAX3263. Each laserdriver has a separate tab at the bottom of the spreadsheet. The required input data is shown in red,and the outputs are shown in black. Also included are operational flags such as \"Good\" or \"Bad,\" whichindicate that device-operating parameters can be exceeded or are out of range. Descriptions of eachof the required inputs are included on each section of the spreadsheet.
