RFOptic’s offers its online RFoF Link Gain Calculator to simulate the RFoF link budget performances including:  link gain, IP1dBc, NF and SNR along with optical parameters for RFOptic’s RFoF programmable product line.

This optical RF link budget simulator is designed for the programmable RFoF family – 2.5GHz, 3GHz, 4GHz, and 6GHz. The simulator allows users of our programmable RFoF products to evaluate and determine the most optimal configuration of the built-in LNA and attenuators such that the target RF performance is achieved given the optical loss budget and RF link budget requirements.
