Software installation

Software Installation

  • Use the attached CD to the textbook to install a copy of “Photonic Transmission Design Suite”

  • This is a fairly old copy. It might cause some problems for PCs with windows XP. Other problems might occur depending on your installed JAVA platform.


Software installation contd

Software Installation (Contd.)

  • If you run into such problem with your installation try the following procedure:


Software installation contd1

Software Installation (Contd.)

  • 1) a) Install PTDS software without changing your Java.b) Open the PTDS folder.c) Open the jre folder.d) Open the bin folder.e) Look for a file symcijt.dllf) Change it to _symcjit.dllg) Run your software. It is largely possible to work now

PRBS Generator

Purpose

The module generates a pseudo random or other types of binary sequences.

Outputs

output = binary sequence (signal type: Int)

Description

A pseudo random binary sequence (PRBS) is usually required when modeling the information source in simulations of digital communication systems. The binary sequence can be generated with the use of a random number generator, or, alternatively, can be directly specified by the user or read from a specified file. The PRBS module produces a sequence of N bits (TimeWindow/BitRate) with the numbers m and n of zero bits (spaces) preceding and succeeding the generated bit sequence of length N-m-n. The numbers m and n can be set by the user via parameters PreSpaces and PostSpaces, respectively. The sequence of generated bits may be saved to or read from a file.


Nrz coder

NRZ Coder

Purpose

The module generates a sampled, NRZ (Non Return to Zero) coded signal defined by a train of bits at its input. The input bit sequence is typically produced by the PRBS Generator module. Although this module appears trivial, it is required to convert between a digital signal and an electrical signal, so that electrical filtering may be implemented.

Inputs

input = bit sequence to encode (signal type: Int)

Outputs

output = electrical NRZ coded signal (signal type: Electrical Blocks, Electrical Samples)

Comments

The number of samples per bit is given by the ratio of SampleRate/BitRate and has to be a power of two. The sample rate sets the bandwidth of the electrical signal to be (sample rate)/2.


Rise time adjustment

Rise Time Adjustment

Purpose

The module is a Gaussian filter that transforms, for example, rectangular electrical input pulses into smoother output pulses with a user-defined rise time.

Inputs

input = electrical pre-shaped (e.g. NRZ/RZ) pulses (signal type: Electrical Blocks)

Outputs

output = electrical pulses with a user-defined rise-time (signal type: Electrical Blocks)


Laser cw

Laser CW

Purpose

The module produces a continuous wave (CW) optical signal.

Outputs

output = continuous wave optical signal (signal type: Optical Blocks, Optical Samples)

Functions

SampleRate-EmissionFrequency-AveragePower-Linewidth-Azimuth-Ellipticity-InitialPhase


Laser rate equations

Laser Rate Equations

Purpose

Dynamic properties of laser emitters, such as relaxation oscillation, turn-on jitter, laser chirp, etc. can significantly affect the performance of optical communication systems, if a direct laser modulation is used. A “system laser model” described in the module Laser CW takes into account the spectral and noise properties of the laser transmitters, but ignores their dynamic behavior. Although the Laser CW model is

suitable for a description of externally modulated CW-lasers, it fails to simulate the directly modulated lasers.


Externally modulated laser transmitter

Externally modulated laser transmitter

Purpose

The module simulates an externally modulated laser. This module is a galaxy and consists of a cw laser, a PRBS generator, an NRZ coder, a rise time adjustment and a Mach-Zehnder modulator.

Outputs

output = optical modulated signal (signal type: Optical Blocks)


Non linear dispersive fiber

Non Linear Dispersive Fiber

Purpose

The module solves the nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation describing the propagation of linearly polarized optical waves in fibers using the split-step Fourier method.

The model takes into account stimulated Raman scattering (SRS), four-wave mixing (FWM), self-phase modulation (SPM), cross phase modulation (XPM), first order group-velocity dispersion (GVD), second order GVD and attenuation of the fiber.

For parameterized signals (CW representation) an ordinary differential equation system taking into account stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) and frequency depended attenuation is applied.

Inputs

input = optical signal

(signal type: Optical Blocks)

Outputs

output = optical signal

(signal type: Optical Blocks)


Ideal amplifier

Ideal Amplifier

Purpose

This module simulates a system-oriented amplifier with a wavelength independent gain and noise figure behavior. By parameter selection the module may act in a gain-controlled, output-power-controlled, or saturating (uncontrolled) mode. The model is not only restricted to high gain amplifiers but is also valid for low gain and even damping amplifiers.

Inputs

input = optical signal

(signal type: Optical Blocks, Optical Samples)

Outputs

output = optical signal

(signal type: Optical Blocks, Optical Samples, corresponding to the

input)

can also be used as a physical signal splitter for signal check.

Purpose

The module acts as a PIN photodiode with additive Gaussian white noise sources.

Inputs

input = optical signal (signal type: Optical Blocks, Optical Samples)

Outputs

output = electrical signal (signal type: Electrical Blocks, Electrical Samples)


Clock recovery ideal

Clock Recovery Ideal

Purpose

The module determines the time delay between the incoming signal and the original

signal, which is automatically regenerated from the specified logical information attached

to the incoming signal without the need of a reference input. Thus, this module

acts as an ideal clock recovery.

Inputs

input = electrical signal (signal type: Electrical Blocks)

Outputs

output = electrical signal, which is a delayed copy of the input (signal type: Electrical Blocks)

Description

The module synchronizes the incoming electrical signal with the original transmitted signal. The original signal is regenerated from the specified logical information channel attached to the physical signal. From logical information, like the digital bit stream, pulse shape, coding type, modulation type, and bit rate, a copy of the initially sent signal is built. The time delay is calculated from the cross correlation of the incoming electrical signal and the internally regenerated original signal. The incoming signal is then shifted in time, so that the electrical output signal is a time delayed copy of the incoming signal.

Purpose

The module evaluates the system performance by estimating the bit error rate

(BER) using a Gaussian approximation. The influence of intersymbol interferences

(ISI) can also be taken into account.

The module uses the bit sequence from input port bits to determine the marks and

spaces in the received signal.
