Our RF over Fiber converters (RFoF) are suitable for any application where cables are not sufficient, especially when high performance is required.

Analog RF over Fiber modules convert RF signals to optical signals and back. One unit has an optical transmitter which converts the signal from RF to Optical, and a second receiver unit converts the signal from Optical to RF. Both units are connected by the optical fiber of the customer.

RFOptic offers two groups of RFoF modules: low frequency (0.5MHz – 6GHz) and high frequency above 6 GHz and up to and including 40 GHz) RFoF solutions.

For selecting the RFoF solution that fits your needs, the table below might be helpful.

Our low frequency programmable RFoF modules (also with SNMP) are based on direct modulation and include 2.5GHz (with optional GPS), 3GHz4GHz6GHz.

Other options include: Bidirectional (2-way) over Fiber receiver (2.5GHz,3GHz,4GHz,6.0GHz), RFoF multi-link series (2.5GHz,3GHz,4GHz,6GHz) which can comes also with different wavelengths (CWDM)

Applications include remote antenna, GSM and cellular communications, broadcast, and satellite.

Our high frequency RFoF modules are based on indirect modulation that starts at 10MHz and includes 8 GHz15 GHz18 GHz20 GHz and 40 GHz. The frequency range has good flatness and good phase noise. The NF gain can be improved by adding an amplifier. Parameters such as Gain, P1dB and Noise Figure can be modified upon request.

Applications include remote antenna, EW, radar, and military communications.
