359B Series 1550 nm Zero Dispersion Modules DATASHEET | NOVEMBER 2014 MICROWAVE The 359B Series Zero Dispersion Modules provide a rack mountable dispersion shifted fiber spool providing a total final output with no chromatic dispersion. These fiber spools provide precise delay time references for radar calibration applications. They can also be used in site diversity applications when system timing is critical These spools can be used to mimic existing fiber in the ground as a transparent switch between the local and diverse site. The 359X platform works with a wide range of fiber optic transport products for satellite and microwave communications from 1 MHz to 40 GHz. These units can be used to construct transparent inter- and intra-facility links from 1 meter to >100 km for RF and microwave signal transport, antenna remoting, video trans- Applications port, electronic warfare systems and other high-dynamic-range applications.

For these cases, midspan breakouts can be placed at every 50 km (about every 245 µs) interval of the 359A Series Delay and Dispersion Compensation Modules to allow the insertion of optical amplification (EDFA). Pigtail Leads - If preferred, the standard bulkhead connector input and output of the 359A Series Delay and Dispersion Compensation Modules can be replaced with a one meter long pigtail with a male connector on the end. © 2014 EMCORE Corporation | REV 2014.11 +1 626-293-3400 [email protected] www.emcore.com Information contained herein is deemed to be reliable and accurate as of the issue date.
