The BC342R is a receiver for the conversion of optical signals into electrical HD-SDI, SD-SDI and ASI. The incoming optical signal is fed to a trans-impedance and limiting amplifier before being electrically reclocked on the outputs.
All Bluebell cards are designed to retain maximum integrity of the signal path offering excellent jitter free optical transport. Careful attention has been paid to reduce thermal runaway, eliminating the need for forced air cooling as fan failure and overheating is the most common cause of failure in modern electronic systems.
Two serial digital signals are available on the output. The BC342R is available in multimode, singlemode and WDM variants to suit any fibre application
