English abstract:
We tested four opto-electronic circuit boards intended to transmit data at a rate of 10 Gbit/s. We determined the losses of boards ATS_TPA3_102 to ATS_TPA3_105 to be 15 dB, 17 dB, 22 dB, and 15 dB, respectively. If the ambient temperature is increased from −20C to 50C, the photocurrent delivered by the boards is increasing.
The measurement of the RF transmission functions as well as the input return losses show excellent properties for frequencies of up to some 8 GHz.
With the used measurement setup the achievable data rate with boards ATS_TPA3_102 and ATS_TPA3_105 was 4.5 Gbit/s at BER ≤ 10^-9. At a data rate of 10 Gbit/s we measured BER < 10^-3. Lower optical losses most likely would allow transmitting signals at a rate of 10 Gbit/s with a BER ≤ 10^-9.
