Paper Abstract

Fiberoptic links are becoming increasingly popular in both long-haul and short-haul applications. Losses in short-haul broadband fiberoptic links are primarily due to many characteristics of electrooptic devices. In particular, electrical mismatch at the electrical/optical interfaces of fiberoptic links have been the dominant source of loss. Fiberoptic link losses can be significantly reduced and link performance enhanced, by reactive matching of the laser and detector modules. The steps in the design of low loss fiber optic links are presented, which are on the basis of two tier de-embedding of laser and photodiodes from test fixtures, and reactively matched them to standard 50 Ω system. These concepts are demonstrated by design of a fiberoptic link operating at 0.5 to 1 GHz using reactively matched optical transmitter and receiver modules. Performance of these modules are also discussed.
