These RF over Fiber transmitters and receivers are compact modules covering from under 100MHz up to 40 GHz and beyond. Features include increased RF gain, high P1dB or low noise figure achieved by design and/or pre and post RF amplifiers. In enclosures RFoF links can be configured as unidirectional or bidirectional.
These broad-spectrum solutions are RFoF links with built-in controlled Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) and step attenuators which can be programmed with RFOptic configuration USB software. This allows the user to modify the channel Gain, P1dBc compression point and Noise Figure (NF). The Noise Figure of these links can be as low as 5dB. The transmitter (Tx) and Receiver (Rx) modules are quite small, and fit into the palm of a hand. Within enclosures the modules can be monitored and controlled remotely with RFOptic’s unique SNMP/HTML/REST interfaces.
Options include: 2.5GHz RFoF with optional GPS (0.5MHz – 2.5GHz), 3.0GHz RFoF (0.5MHz – 3.0GHz), 4.0GHz RFoF (0.5MHz – 4.0GHz), 6.0GHz RFoF (0.5MHz – 6.0 GHz). Other options include: Bidirectional (2-way) over Fiber receiver (2.5GHz – 6.0GHz) and CWDM 8 channel multiplexer (mux) / demultiplexer (demux) devices.
In general, we offer three groups of ODLs:
Our small size analog RFoF cards are available for companies who need RF over Fiber technology in their products (high volumes of at least a few hundred units).
This card, either Tx or Rx, comes as a board with optical, RF connector and DC interface. A control/diagnostic port is available in a small size micro USB interface on board.
Options include: 0.5MHz – 2.5GHz, 0.5MHz – 3.0GHz, 0.5MHz – 6.0GHz.
Our user-friendly RFoF software enables monitoring and adjustment of the RF and Optical parameters, such as link gain, Noise Figure, P1dBc, Optical power, status LED indication and module information, either locally or remotely.
