Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design and the implementation of a high speed optical homodyne transmission system for the high data rate channel YKS of SOLACOS. The SOLACOS YKS (YAG Kommunikations System) is based on the Syncbit transmission scheme and uses diode pumped Nd:YAG lasers and an external phase modulator. The results of the Syncbit algorithm simulations, of a 2 MBit/s breadboard implementation and the state of the high speed system implementation (650 MBit/s net data rate) are presented. Special emphasis is put on the design of the digital electronics for the Syncbit transmission scheme at a total channel data rate of 845 MBit/s.
