EMCORE Launches Industry's First OpenGear(R) IF- And L-Band Fiber Optic Cards For Headend RF Signal Distribution And Interfacility Links

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., March 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMCORE Corporation (Nasdaq:EMKR), a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber optics and solar power markets, today announced the launch of the industry's first high-performance openGear ® Wideband Optical Links for IF, L and wideband RF signal distribution and interfacility links. These new EMCORE OPG-1L series transmitters and receivers will provide transparent signal transport between broadcast or cable network antenna facilities and control room terminal equipment.

openGear is designed to offer a flexible and advanced terminal equipment solution that provides customers with the opportunity to select equipment without the requirement, or investment in multiple frame standards. The EMCORE OPG-1L series is designed to be fully compatible with the openGear standard for broadcast terminal equipment and cable headend applications.

The OPG-1L openGear Wideband Optical Links operate in a frequency range from 50 MHz to 3000 MHz and are optimized for IF- and L-Band and wideband video signals up to 60 km. They are designed with highly-linear, optically-isolated Distributed Feedback (DFB) lasers that enable high-dynamic range links. The transmitter and receiver both have an adjustable gain range of 25 dB. Connectivity is provided through Blind Mate 50 and 75 Ohm RF and LC-APC optical connectors in the openGear mid-plane. The user RF and fiber interfaces are connected to the rear of the openGear chassis allowing them to be installed and terminated, eliminating the need to revise the rack cabling for expansion. The OPG-1L is LNB power capable, CE and CSA certified, and ROHS compliant.

"The combination of EMCORE's family of openGear and Optiva Platform enclosures integrated with RF, video, audio and data modules, enables a versatile, interoperable platform for signal distribution and control room to antenna integration," said Henok Tafese, Senior Director of Business Development for EMCORE. "These new openGear optical transmitters and receivers incorporate the highly-linear performance of EMCORE's DFB laser technology in a compact package compatible with openGear standards, so customers will be able to deploy proven technologies in a standardized open platform approach."
