The Optilab LTA-6-M is a 6 GHz bandwidth lightwave transmitter module output designed for RF over fiber, antenna remoting and broadband RF transmission applications using single mode optical fiber. This convenient, cost-effective module uses a low noise, narrow linewidth, 1550 nm distributed feedback (DFB) laser diode as Continuous Wave (CW) light source. A compact Mach-Zehnder Interferometer (MZI) optical modulator is employed to provide the linear modulation capability that exceeds 6 GHz in its modulation bandwidth, and the externally modulated transmitter design provides a high spurious-free dynamic range and high input intercept point performances. With useful bandwidth up to 6 GHz, the LTA-6-M can be utilized for digital transmission when driven by a wideband modulator driver, and can be paired with the PR-12-B-M series of 12 GHz amplified receivers for a high-speed RF over Fiber Link.
