MicroATx Module for RFoF

Product Features

Micro ATX Performance Data

  • Bandwidth 0.1 to 20 GHz
  • Reconfigurable with and no LNA
  • Noise Figure < 8 dB (< 22 dB no LNA)
  • Very High Linearity
  • High intrinsic RF Gain
  • High RF Saturation
  • Compact size includes low noise electronics and all optical components








The miniature ruggedized 20 GHz analog RF over Fiber (RFoF) optical transmitter is a high performance solution for RF remoting. It is designed as a flexible platform that includes in a small form factor: ultra-low noise driver electronics; Low RIN laser with shot noise performance; high performance modulator and optional LNA. The transmitter can be operated either by an on-off switch using predefined settings or the user can utilize supplied GUI that allows control of all internal components – laser, modulator and LNA operating parameters. The transmitter offers 100 MHz-20 GHz RF instantaneous bandwidth which, when coupled with APIC’s high responsivity and linearity receivers, offers unmatched RFoF performance.

For applications that require high sensitivity and very low minimum detection signal threshold we recommend a configuration using an LNA.

For applications that require higher linearity a transmitter without an LNA is recommended.


  1. Would like to receive a quote for this product for our university lab? Can you also include a quote for an appropriate 20 GHz PD (I don’t know whether the balanced PD can be supported from your transmitter.) The 20 GHz PD could be internally terminated for compatibility with test equipment.

    • Jim,
      We have been negligent in monitoring our web page comments. Typically we receive requests for quotes through direct communication with our sales@apichip.com email address. Are you still interested in our ARx20-50-50-1-APC photodetector with integrated 50 Ohm impedance?

  2. Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to understand
    so much approximately this, like you wrote the book in it or
    something. I think that you can do with some % to force
    the message house a bit, however other than that,
    this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.
