Comparison on the Sensitivity of Fiber-Optic SONET OC-48 PIN-TIAs Measured by Using Synchronous Modulation Intermixing Technique and Bit Error Rate Tester

Abstract

A novel synchronous modulation and intermixing (SMIM) technique is presented to measure the sensitivity and evaluate the bit error rate (BER) of p-i-n photodiode receivers with transimpedance amplifiers (PIN-TIAs) without using any BER tester (BERT). When using the SMIM technique, the premier receiving measurement performance from the data rates of the… (More)
