Abstract : The objective of this thesis was to design and construct a system which transmits and receives data from different analog channels through a single fiber optic cable link. The system uses a microprocessor controlled multiplexer and a high speed analog-to-digital converter. Tests and measurements were performed to examine the restrictions, problems and different options on the various components of the system. Based on the above, a trade-off analysis was performed for the bandwidth and the number of channels. Keywords include: Fiber optic cable, Optical source, Detector, Encoder, Decoder, Manchester, Controller, and CPU.
