Dual channel SDI optical to electrical converter supporting data rates from 143Mb/s to 2.97Gb/s.

The FDR-6603 is a dual fiber optic receiver to serial digital SDI converter providing 2 channels of conversion on a single card supporting serial digital data rates from 143Mb/s up to 2.97Gb/s (1080p). SDI outputs are reclocked providing excellent jitter and return loss specifications.

The FDR-6603 is fully hot-swappable with all active components on the front removable card. No active components are installed on the rear I/O connection module. This design greatly reduces down-time eliminating any need to access the back of the rack frame.

The -R2S high density split rear module can accommodate up to 2 FDR-6603 cards, maximizing the number of conversion channels in a frame. In this configuration, the OG3-FR supports up to 40 independent channel solutions, providing ultra-high density conversion in a 2RU space.
