The MP-6000TX is a RF/ Fiber optic Transmitter designed for antenna remoting and broadband RF transmission applications using singlemode fiber optic cable. The transmitter uses a high efficiency Distributed Feedback (DFB) laser diode with an operating wavelength of 1550 nm that provides low noise and high dynamic range performance. The transmitter's temperature stability is controlled with the use of a temperature compensation network. The transmitter provides status monitoring through the use of an onboard processor that communicates with a host computer over an RS-232 I/O interface. The I/O parameters include laser bias current, temperature and alarm status.
