The innovative controllable phased-matched RFoF product line is suitable for phased array radar, EW, and interferometry deployments

Tel Aviv, April 30, 2020 | RFOptic, a leading provider of RF over Fiber (RFoF) and Optical Delay Line (ODL) solutions, announced today that it has launched its programmable phase-matched 6.0GHz RF over Fiber system for Phased Array Radar, EW, and Interferometry applications.

At RFOptic, we are proud to provide to our EW and communications customers a new product line that solves the challenge of wideband multi-channel phase matching. Wideband RF and Optic transmission technologies suffer from technology and production inaccuracies that pose a challenge to phase matching at microwave frequencies. RFOptic addresses these challenges with its new product line that enables efficient production of such multi-channel systems. Such systems operating over multi-GHz bandwidths are not available in the market”, explained Dr. David Gabbay, VP Research & Development at RFOptic. ”Combined with the other features of our programmable RF over Fiber offering, these new products provide both gain matching) and phase matching, which some of our customers require.”  

Key features of the programmable bidirectional RFoF units include:

  • Phased matched multi-channel CWDM system of ±6° from 0.5MHz to 5.7GHz
    • Next-generation RFoF system with significant performances improvement
    • Support up to 6.0GHz bandwidth
    • Gain matched 6.0GHz full band of ±2.5 dB
    • Improved linearity, excellent gain flatness, and Tx, Rx and Link gain control
    • Noise Figure down to 6 dB with LNA with MDS ~168 dB/Hz for very low incoming signals
    • Internal microcontroller allows RF and Optical control, enabled by software
    • End-to-end diagnostics reduces installation and maintenance time, enabled by software
    • Gain variation S21(fo) of ±1 dB over 90°C variation, utilizing special algorithms
    • Remote management by GUI installed on PC
    • Impedances of 50 Ohms and 75 Ohm
