12GHz Lightwave Modulator with Integrated Driver

VENDOR : optilab


The Optilab LMD-CL-12-R is a high performance analog lightwave transmitter designed for broad bandwidth RF over Fiber (RFoF) applications, up to 7 GHz and beyond. Utilizing an external laser input (DFB, tunable laser, fiber laser, etc. ), this optical seed couples directly into a 7 GHz optical modulator, with a broadband 7 GHz RF driver to maximize the RF link gain performance. Paired with one of Optilab’s high speed photoreceivers, RFoF optical links can be established seamlessly into existing electrical RF networks. The LMD-CL-12-R incorporates a built-in Automatic Bias Control board which allows for stable long-term operation, with up to 4 bias operating modes and adjustable RF gain through the front panel interface and LabVIEW software.
