Press ReleasesVariable RFoF units – Bidirectional

Tel Aviv July 8, 2017 | RFOptic, a leading provider of RF over Fiber (RFoF) and Optical Delay Line (ODL) solutions, announced today that it has launched an innovative compact bidirectional (2 way) RF over Fiber (RFoF) transceiver. The unit is comprised of an uplink of Tx and Rx (at 1550nm) and a downlink of Tx and Rx at 1310nm. The transceiver employs WDM technology to use only 1 fiber link instead of 2.

The bidirectional modules are designed for applications where an uplink as well as a downlink are required such as Transmit/Receive antenna interfaces. In such a case, applications require a single fiber solution utilizing WDM method,” explained Dr. Avner Sharon, CEO & CTO at RFOptic. “The programmable bidirectional RF over Fiber (RFoF) units are especially suitable for remote antennas communication, Satcom, 4G LTE, and broadcast.”

Programmable RFoF units – Bidirectional

Key features of the programmable bidirectional RFoF units include:

  • Next generation of RFoF modules with significant performance improvement
  • Frequency 0.05-3GHz
  • Utilizes WDM technology
  • Better linearity, excellent gain flatness, and Tx, Rx and Link gain control
  • Noise figure down to 6 dB with LNA
  • Internal microcontroller allows RF and Optical control enabled by software
  • End-to-end diagnostics reduce installation and maintenance time, enabled by software
  • Gain control; S21(f) typical of ±1 dB for 90°C variation, utilizing special algorithm
  • Remote management by GUI on PC
  • Impedances of 50 Ohms and 75 Ohm
  • An SNMP remote management can be added
  • Optional Bias-T
