An IQ modulator consists of three different modulators: I, Q arms are intensity modulators, P arm is a phase modulator. The IQ modulator is typically applied to coherent transmission systems. Plugtech Precision Systems’ modulator bias controller is specially designed for IQ modulators to ensure a stable operation state in various operating environments.
Based on its fully digitized signal processing method, the controller can provide ultra stable performance.
The controller injects a low frequency, low amplitude dither signal together with a bias voltage into the modulator. It keeps reading the output from the modulator and determines the condition of the bias voltage and the related error. A compensate bias voltage will be applied afterwards according to the previous measurements. In this way, the IQ modulator is ensured to work under a proper bias voltage.
The controller is very compact in volume, and is suitable for modern communication systems.
