OZ816 – 6GHz Ultra RFoF TRx

Home / Stand Alone Modules / OZ816 – 6GHz Ultra RFoF TRx

OZ816 is a low cost, ultra-broadband (6GHz) RF over Fiber transceiver. A pair of OZ816 transceivers will create a two-way bidirectional RF to Optical and Optical to RF link. OZ816 can also be configured as individual linear (analog) Transmitter (Tx) or Receiver (Rx) units, if necessary. OZ816 is an excellent alternative to using coaxial cable systems and offer significant improvements in the transport of high frequency RF signals in their native format reliably across broad range of frequencies. It has low Noise Figure (NF) and high Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR), with operational frequencies from 47 MHz to 6.0 GHz or more.

The OZ816 is designed as a compact RF plug and play device that is easily integrated into your existing platform. It has a 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 OZ816 module. Typical applications in which the OZ816 can be utilized include, but are not limited to, IF Satcom Band, L Band, S Band, C Band, GPS, PCS Cellular, Wi-Max, 4G LTE, VHF, UHF, QAM, Timing and Frequency signal distribution over fiber and other custom RF over Fiber solutions.

Standard optical connector is SC/APC for low back reflection but FC/APC is also available. OZ816 Rx features a high performance InGaAs photodiode and Tx is based on a linear Isolated DFB or FP Lasers operating at 1.3 µm or 1.5 µm (CWDM LD are available for higher system integration). 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. Alarm monitoring and power input is via male DB-9 connector and +12 Volts DC is required to operate this device.
