Abstract
Optical Networks Inc. has developed and demonstrated a set of space-flight worthy, 12-channel fiber optic transmitter and receiver modules capable of providing data bandwidths up to 1 Gbps. This is accomplished using radiation tolerant commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) optical and electronic components. The parallel spaceborne fiber optic data bus (SFODB) implementation uses ten out of the available twelve fiber optic channels in the parallel fiber optic transmitter (PFOTX) and the parallel fiber optic receiver (PFORX) to implement a byte wide ring bus. The two spare fibers are used to implement a 2 by 10 redundancy configuration. The components were developed under a NASA/GSFC Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.
