Gigabit Detector

The GD200 is a compact, high-performance detector, used in optical ground stations, capable of receiving data rates up to 10 Gbps.

Its low power dissipation, plug-and-play electrical interfaces and easy mounting make it ideal for use in Free-Space-Optical (FSO) terminals, ranging from optical communication ground stations to experimental setups for optical communication.

The GD200 Detector converts data contained in laser beams into a digital bitstream, ready to be processed by a high-speed data handling system. It comes with an optional connecting cable for the telemetry interface, coaxial or optical fibre, with a length of up to 10m.
