s – APIC Corporation completes the integration, test and delivery of a custom designed 6-wavelength analog electro-optic transmitter and receiver for a US DoD application. The transmitter receiver pair is intended for the
research and testing of employing analog photonic links to connect shipboard platform external sensors with inboard receivers and processors. The transmitter lasers are tuned to operate at six different discrete wavelengths aligned with the ITU grid which enables them to be combined/multiplexed together onto a single fiber. Each of the 6 wavelengths can carry the entire band of radio signals from 50 MHz to 20 GHz. Using fiber, which can carry both analog and digital APIC Corporation’s custom designed 6-Channel 20 GHz Analog signals simultaneously in a single strand Transmitter reduces the risk, complexity and cost of making cable connections from external to internal spaces on shipboard platforms. APIC’s advanced RFoF technology provides extremely high-fidelity low-loss signal transmission by virtue of their high-power, ultra low-noise lasers (RIN < -167 dB) and highly linear and highly responsive photo detectors. APIC met the challenge of integrating 6 sets of lasers, external
modulators, low noise amplifiers, with control electronics and power conditioners into the APIC Corporation’s custom designed 6-Channel 20 GHz Analog transmitter housing that’s half as small as a Receiver shoe box. Even smaller, the 6 wavelength
optical receiver is about the size of a small text book.
APIC Corporation is a small business based in Culver City, CA which develops advanced, rugged prototypes for the military as well as high performance electro-optic products for commercial telecommunications and other distributed antenna systems applications.
