Paper Abstract

The design, component selection, fabrication, testing, and evaluation of an electronically-switched, binary, fiber optic, programmable delay line (BIFODEL) are discussed. It comprises seven delay stages, has a maximum delay of 5 microsec, a resolution of 39 ns, and operates over the 2-18 GHz band with a 500 MHz bandwidth, a dynamic range of 36 dB, and a power consumption of 19 W. A discussion on the relative merits of an optically-switched BIFODEL is also presented.
