Press release date: December 11, 2012

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- EMCORE Corporation (Nasdaq:EMKR), a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber optic and solar power markets, today announced the availability of the Optiva Satcom Band Microwave Fiber Optic Transmitters and Receivers for satellite communications, RF antenna remoting and other high-dynamic range microwave applications.

These new products supplement the existing EMCORE Optiva Ultra-Wideband RF Fiber Optic Transport System by adding band-specific C, X, Ku, or Ka transmitter and receiver modules compatible with EMCORE's modular or flange-mount Optiva Platform configurations. The addition of the Optiva Satcom Band RF Fiber Optic Transport System further expands the existing Optiva Platform that already supports 50 MHz to 18, 22 or 40 GHz broadband microwave transport, reference oscillators, IRIG, IF, L & S-band, plus audio, video, data and Ethernet, making it one of the most universal platforms in the industry.

"The Optiva Satcom Band RF Fiber Optic Transport System represents a significant breakthrough in microwave transmission technology from EMCORE," said Frank Weiss, Vice President of EMCORE's Advanced Systems Division. "By leveraging our existing ultra-wideband 50 MHz —40 GHz Optiva products as building blocks, EMCORE is able to provide high-performance externally modulated RF-banded technology at directly modulated technology price points. Additionally, these new products support multiple format frequency transport in a single flexible platform for C, X, Ku, and Ka-band applications."

Utilizing EMCORE's high-performance ultra-low Relative Intensity Noise (RIN) source laser technology and high optical input power capable photodiodes, the Optiva Satcom Band RF Fiber Optic Transport System provides a high-dynamic range of >110 dB-Hz2/3. The system features microprocessor-based transmitter and receiver control for laser and modulator bias, plus variable RF link gain which provides consistent high-performance and constant gain operation.

The standard Optiva transmitter provides a high power optical output and operates at a nominal wavelength of 1550 nm. Wavelength selected lasers on the ITU grid are also available to support multichannel DWDM applications. Additional advanced capabilities include Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) V.1, optical and RF amplification options, and RS-232 monitor & control with flexible user interface options.
