10 GHz High-Gain PhotoReceiver (PR-10-H-M)

Data Sheet

Product Overview

The Optilab PR-10-H-M is a 10 GHz bandwidth high-gain PIN photodiode receiver module designed for RF over fiber, antenna remoting, and broadband RF signals transmission applications using single mode optical fiber. The PR-10-H-M utilizes a wide bandwidth PIN photodiode plus a high-gain Trans-Impedance Amplifier (TIA) of 2000 that provides optical to RF conversion to the frequency range beyond 10 GHz. The PR-10-H-M is a highly linear O/E converter that can be used for both analog and digital signal,  with remote status monitoring through an RS-232 I/O interface. When the PR-10-H-M receiver module is linked with the LT-15-M lightwave transmitter module, the combination provides an excellent solution for ultra-wideband RF to fiber conversion applications, go to optilab.com for more details.
