1 November 1993 Timing performance of self-synchronized optical fiber PPM
Author Affiliations +
Timing performance of optical fiber pulse position modulation (PPM) utilizing self synchronization is considered when the main impairment is the systematic jitter associated with the extracted slot and frame synchronization. An original spectral model is developed and used to evaluate the slot timing performance in terms of both the timing variance and the probability of PPM wrong slot errors (WSE) caused by the jittered clock. A novel method for frame extraction is used and characterized in terms of both, the timing variance of the extracted clock and the error probability (WSE) caused by the frame clock jitter. The analysis explicitly illustrates the impact of the various PPM and phase lock loop (PLL) parameters on the extracted clocks and system error performance, thus allowing the identification of the optimum parameters for a given required performance.
