Product Announcement from Microwave Photonic Systems, Inc.
Microwave Photonic Systems Inc. announces the release of an upgraded version of our MP-5000 series of Ultra-Wide Band 12 GHz RF/ Fiber Optic Links. The MP-5000 was originally debuted on September 2003 at the Military Electronics Show in Baltimore and was received well amongst the attendees. Since that time MPS has sold in excess of two hundred MP - 5000 links for applications ranging from military SATCOM to Radar Delay Lines to high capacity PCS & WiFi wireless RF backhauls. The upgraded version has an improved RF dynamic range which is complimented with an expanded built in status monitoring capability, improved low noise / high efficiency DC/DC power converter, new high output power laser and high power handling receiver (> 6mW) and RoHAS compliant circuit board and components. Call today for our all new MP - 5000 data sheet. Applications:
- Point-to-Point Wideband RF Transmission - Antenna Remoting (GPS, XM, SIRI, WiFi, PCS, etc.) - SATCOM (L-Band, S-Band, C-Band, Ku-Band) - Trunking Radio - Frequency and Timing Distribution - Telemetry - Radar Delay Lines
The MP-5000L system is an ultra-wide band, linear analog RF fiber optic link designed to support a wide array of RF over fiber transport applications. It is offered in three configurations: (A) 1.0 MHz to 12 GHz, (B) 1.0 MHz to 6 GHz and (C) 1.0 MHz to 12 GHz. The MP-5000L can be used as the core of an optical Interfacility Link (IFL) subsystem designed to transport radio and satellite up and downlink signals between remote points separated by up to 50 Kms. The transmitter utilizes a 1.3 µm distributed feedback laser that is mated to a singlemode optical fiber. The fiber is terminated with the customer's choice of optical connectors and fitted to the transmitter's bulkhead adapter. The transmitter incorporates both optical and thermal stabilization circuitry that ensures constant optical output power over the operational temperature and lifetime of the unit. The receiver utilizes a broadband and low distortion InGaAs PIN photodiode detector that is mated to a singlemode optical fiber.
