L-Band, Extended Range, RF Photonic Link
The MP 50150A1MTX and MP 50125A1MRX provides long haul transport of satellite communications signals using a high performance L-Band RF Photonic architecture designed to leverage the latest technology for optical amplification and dispersion compensation. The transmitter (50150A1MTX) and receiver (50125A1MRX) modules are both equipped with digitally controlled RF gain blocks which allow the operator to dynamically configure the RF channel Carrier to Noise (C/N) and Carrier to Intermodulation (C/IMD) performance to best optimize the RF channel for Uplink (UL) or Downlink (DL) transmission.
In addition, to further enhance RF channel performance when novel long haul architectures are employed these modules are compatible with the MP-17X100TDC. The MP-17X100TDC is an optical C-Band subsystem consisting of an Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) and a Tunable Dispersion Compensator Module (TDCM), and is used to facilitate RF channel enhancements for architectures in which multiple optical channels are multiplexed onto a single fiber (DWDM) and/or extended transmission distances up to 100 km are required.
The 50150A1MTX uses an ultra linear C-Band Distributed Feedback (DFB) laser diode that provides high dynamic range performance. The laser bias and temperature stability are ensured by use of an embedded microprocessor controlled feedback loop. The microprocessor also provides status monitoring of all critical parameters and communicates this information to a network computer using an Ethernet interface. The parameters include laser bias current, temperature and alarm status.
The 50125A1MRX utilizes a high-speed, low distortion PIN photodiode detector and also has an integrated microprocessor which provides the user with status monitoring of critical parameters. The parameters include received optical power, temperature and alarm status.
The 50150A1MTX and 50125A1MRX are both designed as plug-in modules for use within the MPS 4RU series chassis, offering a high capacity, hot swappable form factor.
