High linearity analog receivers and transmitters from AGx

AGx technologies: Fibre optic transmitters and receiversWe have partnered with AGx technologies to bring you a range of high linearity analog receivers and transmitters. AGx are a leading supplier of semi-conductor lasers and detectors.

Their applications include analog transmission over fibre (RFoF / RFoG), sensors, cable television (CATV), cellular networks, distributed antenna systems (DAS), satellite transmission (SAT) and monitoring.

Fibre optic transmitters

The MQW DFB laser modules are designed for use in the transmission of broadband analog signals. The high linearity of the direct modulated lasers makes them especially suitable for RF over fibre applications, whereas the CW lasers are suitable for use with external modulators. All critical components are hermetically sealed, including optical isolator, TEC, thermistor, laser and monitor photodiode.

Key features

  • High linearity distributed feedback (DFB) laser
  • Directly Modulated or CW
  • Wavelength available: ITU CWDM, 1310 nm, 1550 nm
