USE OF FIBER OPTIC INTERCONNECTS FOR SIGNAL INTEGRITY
2016 (English)In: PROCEEDINGS OF 2016 ESA WORKSHOP ON AEROSPACE EMC (AEROSPACE EMC), IEEE, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
Signal integrity (SI) is always a concern when it comes to high-speed data transmission. Even in space, there is a need for high-speed data transmission such as in the communication systems, monitoring various subsystems and for other on-board experiments and applications. From Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) perspective, using fiber-optic interconnect is highly recommended to avoid interference issues. This field has been explored for quite some time now, but mostly limited to applications that are on earth. Using these interconnects for harsh and extreme environments i.e. in space, requires reliability and ruggedness of interconnects and the system. This study suggests methods for optical fiber based communication systems for internal unit communication, communication within various instruments, as well as inter-board communication. A conclusion in terms of what areas need to be explored for enabling high-speed data transmission for space applications would be discussed in details. This study also explores and compares the existing technologies in the fiber-optic interconnects for space applications.
