Paper Abstract

A high speed programmable fiber optic binary data generator is presented. Data generation is accomplished by time-multiplexing the outputs of a number of laser diodes. Programmability is achieved by individual control of each laser diode. A 500 Mbit/s RZ prototype that uses 32 laser diodes is presented along with experimental results of a 3.85 Gbit/s RZ four-channel system.
