EMCORE 5021D-D11

5021D-D11 18 GHz, 250 ns Max
Internal Fiber Delay Line System
DATASHEET | NOVEMBER 2013
MICROWAVE
The 5021D-D11 18 GHz fiber optic delay line delivers unmatched
performance for radar testing, signal processing, phased array
antennas and phase noise testing. This rugged device eliminates
many of the problems that are inherent in alternative transceiver
technologies.
Applications
„„ Radar Testing
„„ Signal Processing
„„ Phased Array Antennas
„„ Phase Noise Processing
EMCORE’s fiber optic delay lines provide bandwidth that is essentially independent of fiber length, loss or delay, and triple transit signals that are
immeasurable. In addition to enhanced electrical performance, the delay lines
provide several mechanical advantages. EMCORE’s technology takes advantage of
the rigid yet flexible properties of fiber optic cable to provide repeatable enhanced phase and group delay characteristics. The small size of these components
allows for a long delay in a compact package with the superior temperature
stability of fiber.
