RFOptic, a leading provider of RF over Fiber (RFoF) and Optical Delay Line (ODL) solutions, announced today that a major U.S. Research Laboratory has concluded the testing of its programmable 6 GHz RFoF solution successfully. The tests show that the solution is a viable alternative for replacing coax (copper) solutions.

“The tests showed that RFOptic’s technology enables cable replacement without degradation of the RF performances. In one of the tests, the RFoF link even outperformed the copper link. Furthermore, the QPSK constellation test showed that the RFoF clusters were more compact than the copper clusters,” explained Oz Abramson, VP at RFOptic. “We are proud that the research lab has tested our programmable RFoF solutions that keep on making their mark in several market segments, from defense to broadcast to telecommunications. At RFOptic, we will continue serving our clients with this new product line that has excellent cost/performance, full flexibility in RF and optical parameters, a set of diagnostic tools and a user friendly interface to manage the RFoF link. The programmable RFoF solutions are sold in 3 frequency ranges from 0.0005 GHz to 2.5GHz, to 3.0GHz and to 6.0GHz respectively.”

RFOptic’s RF over Fiber (also known as RF over Glass) link is comprised of Tx and Rx modules that are identical in size. GUI adjustable LNAs and attenuators allow the Noise Figure, Input P1dB, System Gain, and IP3 parameters to be adjusted for a wide range of values to customize the dynamic range of the link. Furthermore, the software controlled LNA of the transmitter module enables the solution to accept RF input powers as low as -100dBm/MHz for wideband applications. Additionally, Noise Figure as low as 6 dB is achieved by adjusting LNA power which is important for achieving high SNR for low RF input power.

The series of tests performed by the research lab included:

  •     Spur Tests (SFDR) with single and multiple tones,
  •     Gain Flatness
  •     Latency
  •     USRP
  •     Spectral Regrowth
  •     Error Vector Magnitude
  •     QPSK Constellation

In addition to programmability that improves RFoF link performance, the solution also includes special diagnostic capabilities to enable the user to analyze both the RF link and the optical link and locate a problem without using expensive measurements tools.
RFOptic solutions are marketed in the North American market by Summit Communications Solutions, Corp, a NJ Corporation, with extensive experience in RF Over Fiber and Optical Delay Line Solutions.
