PSI operates from its main facility in Billerica, MA just outside of Boston along
with engineering offices in California and Virginia. The main facility houses engineering and administrative office, engineering development labs, prototype production, manufacturing, and final test areas. For higher volume manufacturing, PSI utilizes contract manufacturing firms and device foundry services as needed. PSI has manufactured hundreds of RF optical links for specialized photonic applications including microwave antenna remoting, defense and communications applications. Our business model is based on engineering solutions to our customer’s problems through application of unique photonic technologies.
Our state of the art laboratory facilities enable PSI to design, assemble, test and integrate the photonic links and components into advanced systems. Along with commercial software tools, proprietary PSI developed modeling programs can be used to estimate the performance of various approaches to implementing the required functions. PSI staff members are among the most experienced in the field of RF communications with fiber optics and are immediately ready to begin prototyping and measurements to support our customers’ design goals.
General test equipment for measuring device and link performance is also on hand including noise figure and intermodulation-free dynamic range test sets, spectrum analyzers – both RF and optical, RF network analyzers – both 2 port (up to 50 GHz) and 4 port (up to 20 GHz), lightwave network analyzers, RF probe station, fiber positioning equipment, oscilloscopes, signal generators, power supplies and power meters. PSI also has significant microwave antenna design and testing capability. This includes simulation packages as well as an in-house anechoic chamber.
PSI’s facilities are compliant with all Massachusetts and federal regulations. We are ITAR registered and DCAA compliant.
