Paper Abstract

A series of tests was performed to evaluate off-the-shelf components for the design of a fiber optic channel for the Nascom System Improvements Project in support of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. This paper describes the results of this series of tests, establishing operational performance of active and passive fiber optic components at data rates up to 150 Mb/s. These tests determine the transmission characteristics of the fiber optic transmitters and receivers and the effects of data rate, bit pattern sensitivity, and vestigial optical energy on the performance of these devices. Tests were also performed to evaluate the capability of fused biconical couplers to Function properly at these high data rates.
