1 July 1990 Study of a 1-Gbit 0.84-um heterodyne system for ISL application
Author Affiliations +
A heterodyne 840-nm laser diode system operating up to 1 Gbit/s has been studied in detail with respect of its potential use for intersatellite link (ISL) communication. The breadboard uses only commercially available components and is designed to operate with single filter FSK or CPFSK demodulation scheme. The system sensitivity has been measured for 1 Gbit/s pseudorandom patterns and has been compared with direct detection results from the same test bed. The overall breadboard performances are discussed with respect to ISL communication requirements.
