PD-LD, Inc., the worldwide leader in Volume Bragg Grating® (VBG®) technology, announced it is now in full production of the PW85ST and PW13ST modules, utilized primarily for video transmission systems. These multi mode fiber compatible devices support full duplex communications over standard 50um core and 62.5um core optical fiber, and are equipped with an ST connector interface.
"Our PW85ST and PW13ST parts offer a replacement solution for security equipment designers and other groups that currently rely on the Zarlink MF699 and MF799 units," said Dr. Vladimir S. Ban, PD-LD President and CEO. "PD-LD hopes to fill this niche market following Zarlink's recent end-of-life announcement concerning its own line of modules."
The small, compact PW85ST and PW13ST transmitter and receiver modules operate in the 850 and 1300nm optical windows utilizing LED light sources. Both are designed to simultaneously transmit and receive over a single optical fiber at frequencies from DC to 200MHz. Not only are they 100 percent tested for conformance to specification, they also meet the demanding requirements of industrial operating temperature ranges of -40°C to 85°C.
"PD-LD welcomes the opportunity to support manufacturers with their existing designs, and help them continue producing the products that require these components," said Tom DeBerardine, PD-LD Director of Sales. "We will work with customers to develop solutions that allow them to continue with, or improve, their product lines. PD-LD's rugged modules offer reliable performance at a competitive price."
