RF-over-Fiber Optic Link – 12 Channel

Analog Fiber Optic Link RF-over-Fiber – 12 Channel.

Handles RF Analogue, Digital & TETRA.


RF-over-Fiber Optic Link – 12 Channel

The RF-over-Fiber Module (RFoF6 – 5GHz) converts RF signals into Fiber signals; and also converts Fiber signals to RF signals. The module offers a wide frequency range up to 5 GHz, with excellent stability, frequency jitter and phase noise performance. Rapidly growing use in within communications systems, defence systems, test environments and other high-tech niches.

A separate Tx & Rx module is required for this solution.


  • Wide bandwidth from 10 MHz to 5 GHz
  • No external control circuits required
  • Analog Signal to Optical convert and back
  • Handles RF Anologue, Digital & TETRA


  • within communication systems
  • radar applications
  • test environments

Potential Applications:

  • Aerospace+Defense applications such as a variety of radar systems, naval systems, UAV’s & airframe cable systems for aeroplanes and helicopters.
  • Specialised Test environments.
  • Offshore applications such as communications systems on rigs.
  • Distributed Antennas Systems (DAS).
  • Customised – Delay Lines.

Additional Information

  • All modules are RoHS Compliant.
  • All modules are EMV protected.
  • Various racks and enclosures available.
  • No MIL Standard with standard module. MIL and other certifications are possible upon request.
    (A qualification fee will apply to any certifications.)
  • All modules are single packaged.
