iXblue – MODBOXES

ModBoxes

ModBoxes are custom designed Modulation Units and Transmitters. They incorporate a complete and dedicated modulation stage with power supply and control electronics and optional laser source and receiver. ModBoxes can be taylored to accomodate a broad variety of applications : pulse generation, pulse picking, spectral broadening, analog modulation and all formats of digital communication.
