Paper Abstract

An automated test system was developed to test and characterize high-speed, fiber-optic transmit/receive (T/R) modules in a high-volume production environment. This tester is designed to test the Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI), Physical Media Dependent (PMD) specifications and various other parameters to 200 MBd and higher. At this time, the PMD specifications are still evolving and various test methods are being employed to test the same parameters. The results from these test methods may yield components giving sub-par system performance. In order to guarantee the interoperability of these modules from various suppliers, consistency in test methodology must be established. This consistency will aid in the acceptance and success of the FDDI standard.
