GD200 GIGABIT DETECTOR

The GD200 is a compact, high-performance detector, used in optical ground stations, currently capable of receiving data rates up to 1 Gbps.

The GD200 Gigabit Detector converts data contained in digital laser signals into a digital bitstream, ready to be processed by a high-speed data handling system. Its plug-and-play electrical interfaces and easy mounting make it ideal for use in optical communication ground stations as well as experimental setups for optical communication. AAC Hyperion is working with known Optical Modem suppliers to ensure compatibility with the laser communication supply chain. If required, an integrated Modem & Detector Solution can be made available. It will allow easy integration and provide a convenient one-stop-shop experience. The GD200 has been developed together with TNO. TNO is a Dutch research institute with a strong heritage in high-performance optics, amongst others in optical communication.
