In this paper, we present an optimum TO-38 package design for SFF/SFP optical transceiver modules in order to improve the 3-dB bandwidth. The frequency response of the TO-38 package is measured and compared to simulation where the 3-dB-bandwidth was 3.5 GHz. For a higher operating bandwidth (> 15 GHz), new optimized physical geometries for the TO-can package, such as bonding wires, leads, and material, are suggested. The optimal result of simulation shows that this TO-can package can be used at a higher-bit-rate optical module of 10 Gb/s.
