TIA-3000 30 KHz to 10 GHz O/E Converter

The TIA-3000 is a versatile Optical to Electrical converter for laboratory or field use. This low profile O/E converter will faithfully reproduce an optical signal on a wide range of oscilloscopes and digitizers.


The unit is equipped with an InGaAs detector that is responsive in the wavelength range of 900 - 1700 nm. The TIA-3000 bandwidth ranges from 30KHz to 10GHz (-3dB).   Applications for this converter include the General purpose testing of fiber optic components, data links and transmitter testing, LIDAR and analog RF-over-fiber links.


The TIA-3000 like other Terahertz Technologies Inc. TIA O/E  devices are shipped in a hard case with universal power supply that has interchangeable AC plugs.
