We have successfully developed a low-noise and high-power Pr/sup 3+/-doped fluoride amplifier (PDFA) module with a cascade configuration. The maximum signal gain and noise figure were 40.6 dB and 5 dB, respectively. An output power of 20.1 dBm was achieved at an input signal power of 0 dBm. We confirm that this PDFA module performs well from experimental results on its use in a 40 channel AM-VSB video signal transmission and a 10 Gbit/s digital transmission.<>
