NanoSpeed™ SM Variable Photonic Time Delay
The NSTD Series Photonic Time Delay generates variable time delay by selectively routing optical signals through N (<=8) fiber segments whose lengths increase successively by a power of 2 to form a N bit digital delay line. The NSTD allows customers to splice each fiber loop, creating increments of DT, up to the maximum value T. The switching between each loop is achieved using a patented non-mechanical configuration. The solid-state configuration eliminates the need for mechanical movement and organic materials. The device is designed to meet the most demanding switching requirements of ultra-high reliability and fast response time.
