Optical Transceiver: The Basics

What is an Optical Transceiver?

An optical transceiver is a digital optical device that captures images on its surface and amplifies it onto an electronic display screen. The devices we describe are virtually the same as analog receivers, with a few key differences. The transceivers described here are used in certain high performance computing (HPC) applications. They are also used in other high-performance applications where a high resolution signal or a very high number of digits is required. These transceivers have an integrated circuit (IC) with a digital (bit-slice) laser. What is a Beam Splitter? Beam splitters redirect the light coming from a light source. If the source of light is a camera, you use the beam splitter to direct the light that comes through to a camera module.

Why is it needed?

Optical Transceivers are typically used in conjunction with several components such as sensors and/or cameras. These components provide advanced surveillance capabilities to allow detection of vehicles, persons and people by detecting light. The sensors, cameras, and other components may either be located on a structured surface such as roadways or are placed in a vehicle or similar area for purposes of follow up. Transceivers may be used to guide the light beam in order to avoid obstacles and/or monitor areas of concern. What is an Optical Transceiver? Optical Transceivers are devices that are used in conjunction with sensors and/or cameras, or for motion detection and tracking applications.

The Basics of Optical Transceivers

Optical Transceivers (OTT) are small, single point-to-point RF transceiver devices that are widely used to connect telecommunication, sensing and networking devices to devices such as buses, switches, PDAs, routers, mobile phones, printers, cellular telephones, CCTV systems and security systems, low power MEMS and sensors, and other next generation electronic devices. Benefits of OTT products Small, single point-to-point sizes provide excellent transmission reliability for distances up to tens of feet. They can be easily integrated into products with minimal interferences or signal losses. Demand for OTT products will increase as the volume of Internet traffic continues to grow. In the next generation networks, OTT devices have the capability to connect millions of devices.

In conclusion, our transceivers are compliant with Ethernet, Fibre Channel, Infiniband, SONET/SDH/OTN, CPRI, OIF, and PON standards and operate at data rates in excess of 100 Gbps.
