RF Optic’s 30GHz RF over Fiber SFDR modules convert RF signals to optical signals and back

The Tx unit uses an optical transmitter to convert RF to optical signal. The Rx unit converts that optical signal back to RF signal. The two units are connected by the customer’s fiber.

RF Optic’s RF over Fiber modules are suitable for telecommunications, 5G, radar and EW, and satcom applications.

Satellite and point-to-point remote antennas, can be connected from several meters to many kilometers away from the control room. Base stations can be connected through fiber to remote sector antennas.

Broadcasters can easily distribute their full RF streams over fiber to remote locations. This eliminates the need for complex equipment to be installed in far or hard to reach locations.

With our wideband units, cable operators can locate their broadcasting equipment centrally. The RF is connected through fiber to the remote location. This reduces the CAPEX and OPEX of their networks significantly.
