We have developed a small, surface mountable InP-based Mach-Zehnder modulator module. New designs for the electrical ports enable the modulator to be directly mounted on a printed circuit board. We demonstrated a 100-km transmission through single-mode fiber with a 10-Gb/s nonreturn-to-zero signal and a 220-km transmission with a 10-Gb/s optical duobinary signal to confirm the applicability of this device as an ultralong-haul small form factor transponder.
