Huber+Suhner, a Swiss company that manufactures and distributes electrical and optical connectivity systems and components for the communication, transportation, aerospace, defense, testing and measurement, and industrial end markets, has developed a range of RF-over-Fiber and GPS-over-Fiber modules for various RF, GPS, and LAN applications.
RF-over-Fiber developments are driven by a philosophy of providing high-density RF connectivity, while significantly reducing cable footprints. HUBER+SUHNER’s single mode, simplex and duplex systems are both flexible and perfect for harsh environments. Flexibility is achieved by providing customers with a wide range of options when it comes to interconnectivity, while the scalability of the systems enables an unlimited RF connectivity density. The use of HUBER+SUHNER’s renowned components, such as RADOX and Q-ODC-12, ensures that the system can be deployed in any environment and with a significantly smaller cable footprint. The standard RF-over-fiber modules are available in 1, 6 and 12 ports and cover a wide frequency range of 1 MHz to 40 GHz. The systems are capable of covering distances of up to 100 km and are perfect for applications requiring secure, low loss, lightweight and high-density connectivity.

HUBER+SUHNER GPSoF modules are focused on distributing a single GPS signal into multiple receiver systems. This approach ensures that signal data, such as time synchronization into separate, yet connected, systems is always the same. Standard GPSoF systems include both single and multiport solutions; and accommodate both L1 and L2 bands. In addition to the GPSoF modules, HUBER+SUHNER also provides a Time and Frequency Standard (TFS) module. This module uses 1PPS to ensure that time synchronization is still possible in the event of a loss of GPS signal. The pulse is synchronized to the average of the GPS signal. The module also provides a 10 MHz electrical output, which is used for reference signaling. The small form factor of the GPSoF modules ensures that the systems are ideal for both fixed and mobile applications, where space may be limited.
