Real-time analog-to-digital-compression radio-over-fiber (ADX-RoF) transport with <500ns processing latency overhead is demonstrated by using a single-chip programmable radio platform. 16-channel 61.44MHz 1024QAM-OFDM signals of 5G NR-class is delivered with ~4-Gb/s optical OOK interface, maintaining EVM<1.4%.
