L-Band Fiber Optic IFL Transmitter & Receiver
The MP-2350TX and MP-2350RX is an RF/Fiber Optic module pair (link) designed to provide electrical-to-optical (E/O) and optical to electrical (O/E) conversion of RF signals over a frequency range of 850 MHz to 2150 MHz.
The utilization of the MP-2350TX , in conjunction with the appropriate MP-2350RX RF/Fiber Optic Receiver, forms a broadband link capable of supporting the transmission of RF signals over singlemode optical fiber for use in a wide array of communication applications. The link applications include antenna remoting, SATCOM, RF delay lines, telemetry tracking, and point-to-point RF transmission.
The transmitter utilizes a low noise, high dynamic range Distributed Feedback (DFB) laser with integrated temperature stability control. The transmitter operates over link distances up to 50 km. The transmitter’s gain can be adjusted using the integrated variable RF attenuator. The unit provides the user with status monitoring through the use of an onboard processor that communicates via the rack chassis backplane. Device monitor and control is available over an Ethernet interface as well as the front panel display and key pad. The I/O parameters include laser bias current, temperature and alarm status.
The receiver utilizes a high speed, low distortion PIN photodiode detector that is integrated with a broadband RF post amplifier. The receiver’s post-amplifier gain can be adjusted using the integrated variable RF attenuator. The unit, similar to that of the 2350TX, provides I/O parameters such as received optical power, temperature and alarm status.
