Abstract

Experimental assessment of commercial 100/200 Gbps optical coherent DSP modem ASIC completed with 64 MeV and 480 MeV proton radiation test campaigns. Single event effect cross sections calculated and no performance degradation observed for proton fluence levels up to 1.27×10^12 p/cm^2 with equivalent total ionizing dose exposure to 170 krad(Si).
