RF Photonic Delay Line
The MPS Optical / Photonic Delay Line (OPDL) is a “Best in Class” integrated subrack that leverages MPS’s field proven optical packaging methodologies, proprietary control software, and RF / Photonic integration techniques.
The OPDL-6000-DL-18G provides time delay capability for Radio Frequency (RF) input signals from 100 MHz to 10 GHz, is packaged in an 2RU x 19” rack chassis, configurable with delays up to 500 us, and available options for all RF and optical connectors.
The OPDL-6000-DL-18G can be configured with multiple time delay segment values. The delay values of the segments can either be configured as discrete time delay values, or can be configured as a binary 2n series. The binary 2n series configuration provides the ability to select delay values over a broader range with smaller time increments. Delay values are visible on the front panel display and can be incremented through the use either the front panel key pad or remotely using the digital communications interface.
The OPDL-6000-DL-18G has an option to integrate Variable Optical Attenuators (VOA) which allow the operator to balancing the system gain profile. Similar to the switch, the VOA is controlled by the front panel control keys or through the digital communications interface.
