Paper Abstract

A novel low-cost multi-channel optical transmission system for video signals is described. The system uses time-division multiplex pulse-position modulation (TDPPM). The complete transmitter and receiver are realized in a standard bipolar process while an external low-cost laser and PIN photodiode are used. A maximum of 16 channels can be multiplexed, and a semi-professional quality with a weighted signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 54 dB is achieved. For a launched power of 0 dBm (pulse amplitude), the optical budget for a 45 dB weighted SNR exceeds 20 dB. The feasibility of a four-channel system has been confirmed by measurements.
