The mechanical, optical, and electrical design leading to a reliable, high-performance, robust, and compact transmitter are described. Reliability considerations are of paramount importance in the design of undersea systems. Main features of the laser-fiber-monitor package and the light-feedback control strategy are outlined. The functions of the laser drive circuit, consisting of a low-speed feedback IC and a high-speed modulation IC are discussed. Access to multiple test points through an… CONTINUE READING
