When considering using RF over Fiber, you want to stay within your optical and RF link budget. Therefore, you need to know what the maximum fiber length that you can use will be. To help you with your planning, we at RFOptic have developed a unique tool to not only calculate the fiber length, but also to determine the minimum detectable signal (MDS) that you can use.
The link gain calculator is (of course) useful for our existing customers who bought RFOptic’s programmable RF over Fiber products up to 6GHz.
For new customers that are considering using our RF over Fiber products, it will help them to simulate and calculate the deployment. This is especially useful for lab personnel as well as system integrators that are using fiber networks such as optical fibers, optical splitters and optical mux and demux CWDM devices.
It is worth noting that RFOptic’s unique built-in Low Noise Amplifier enables customers to get noise figures of typically less than 6dB. Moreover, RFOptic unique 31.5dB digital attenuator in 0.5dB steps in the Tx and the Rx can be tuned to the desired link performances.
You are invited to try our Link Gain Calculator for RFoF products up to 6GHz.
