Paper Abstract

A low-cost, high performance data link design is described for optical fibre LAN/MAN applications. The transmission rate is 140 Mbit/s and the signalling rate is 280 MBaud using a biphase line code. This signalling rate is within the maximum switching speed of high performance commercial SLEDs and ECL. Multimode transmission was used for LAN applications but for MANS, single mode transmission up to 23 km has been demonstrated using a commercially available semiconductor laser.
