Optiva OTS-2 Q/V-Band 60 GHz Unamplified Microwave Band Fiber Optic Links

The Optiva OTS-2 Q/V-Band 60 GHz Microwave Band transmitter and receiver are ideal to construct transparent fiber optic links in the 50 MHz to 60 GHz frequency range for antenna remoting, electronic warfare systems, broadband delay lines, signal processing systems and other high-dynamic-range applications.

Optiva microwave band transmitters and receivers are SNMP compliant. They can be housed in the same chassis and monitored by the same Network Management System (NMS) as other Optiva cards to support transport of multiple signal formats and frequency bands in a single flexible platform.

A consultation with your EMCORE representative, or authorized EMCORE reseller is the 1st step in designing your system. Email Us, or call +1 609-439-5758 to request 60 GHz test data and a design consultation.


  • 50 MHz -60 GHz – Eliminates the performance and cost penalty of block up/down conversion
  • Low RIN Source Laser – Provides high-dynamic-range of >102 dB-Hz2/3
  • Microprocessor-based transmitter control for laser bias, modulator bias & link gain – provides consistent high performance operation and allows for modulator low bias operation with higher SFDR
  • SNMP monitor & control interface – Flexible user interface options
  • Compatible with EMCORE’s modular Optiva Platform – Allows multiple format and frequency transport in a single chassis.
  • DWDM Operation – Increases transport capacity without increasing fiber count


  • Microwave antenna signal distribution
  • Electronic Warfare (EW) systems
  • Broadband delay line and signal processing systems
  • Frequency distribution systems
  • Radar system calibration
  • Phased array antenna systems, interferometric antenna arrays
