So I have been looking for way to send multiple analog signals through a Fiber Optic (FO) link. I need to have a sampling >= 10 MHz and >= 12bits of precision. I was told that a serial output ADC and serial input DAC is the most FO friendly way of going about this.

Just to make sure this is similar to using say a microcontroller to multiplex multiple analog signals and use an onboard ADC to send digitized data to say another microcontroller with a DAC to convert the signal to Analog?

Also if any of you have any suggestion as to what serial output ADC and serial input DAC I should look into would be greatly appreciated.

Also The FO link would have to interface the serial output of the ADC to say a DB-9 connection on the FO link?

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

There is a device named optical multiplexer can multiplex multiple analog signals to to convert the signal to Analog.It can convert the signals between analog and digital.Maybe it can make your items more easier .

good luck!
