MAKO-X C/X-Band RF Over Fiber Transceiver

The MAKO-X C/X-Band RF over Fiber Transceiver is designed for high-speed fiber optics communications applications from 3.4 GHz to 8.4 GHz. Building on EMCORE’s 40-years of expertise in RF over fiber links, this new transceiver module combines C/X band transmitter and receiver capability in a single highly ruggedized flange-mount package that is tested to MIL-STD-810G & MIL-STD-461F standards. It features C-Band and X-Band frequency range, full-duplex transceiver, high spurious-free dynamic range of 105 dB-Hz, excellent phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz, and 1550 nm DWDM laser (1310 nm/1620 nm for WDM).
