Abstract
To solve the satellite repeater’s flexible and wide-band frequency conversion problem, two novel microwave photonic repeater schemes of generating four and eight different output RF frequencies from one input RF carrier are proposed by adjusting the dual-parallel Mach-Zehnder Modulator’s(DPMZM) electrical configurations. Both schemes can realize simultaneous inter- and intra-band frequency conversion in one single structure and need only one onboard frequency-fixed microwave source. In the first scheme, one C-band RF signal’s 6 GHz carrier can be successfully converted to 2GHz, 4GHz, 16GHz and 22GHz, while the other scheme demonstrates the frequency conversion from 16GHz to eight different frequencies(6GHz, 26GHz, 22GHz, 42GHz, 4GHz, 36GHz, 12GHz and 52GHz).
