OZ450 – Standard RFoF Link

Home / Modules / OZ450 – Standard RFoF Link

OZ450 is a compact, modular, low cost series that consists of individual Transmitter (Tx) and Receiver (Rx) modules, which when connected via optical fiber, creates a one-way unidirectional link. It is an excellent alternative to using coaxial cable systems and offers significant improvements in the transport of high frequency RF signals in their native format reliably across broad range of frequencies. The link has low Noise Figure (NF) and high Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR), with operational frequencies from 47 MHz to 3.0 GHz or more.

The OZ450 is designed as a compact RF plug-in package that is easily integrated into your existing platform. This simple plug and play device has very low failure rate with an MTTF at room temperature of 20 years. Virtually any analog RF signal that falls within its bandwidth range can be transported over fiber optic cable using the OZ450 module. Typical applications in which the OZ450 can be utilized include, but not limited to, IF Satcom Band, L Band, GPS, PCS Cellular, UHF and VHF signal distribution over optical fiber.

Standard optical connector is SC/APC for low back reflection but FC/APC is also available. The OZ450 Rx features a high performance InGaAs photodiode and the Tx is based upon a linear Isolated FP Laser operating at 1.3 µm. Average Automatic Power Control (AAPC) is incorporated for optimal optical power stability over the full temperature range. RF interface is via a 50 Ohm SMA connector and optional 75 Ohm SMB is also available. Alarm and monitoring functions are available through the 10 pin connector and +12 Volts DC power is fed through same connector.
