To this end, orderly arrangement of printed circuit panels, ribbon cables, twisted pairs, and coaxial cables are used for these connections. Special interfacing line drivers are required for high-speed lines between chip modules. Normally, a backplane structure is passive, serving only to supply interconnection and mechanical support. In some cases, active circuitry has been incorporated in the backplane presumably to reduce the lengths of some connections or to equalize lengths. This arrangement can create serious troubleshooting and maintenance problems however; and some systems made in this way are being retrofitted with passive backplanes.

5 Optically Induced AM/FM Modulation Optically illumination can be used to modulate an IMPATT oscillator [29]. AM modulation can be attained by two methods—quenching or enhancing. Quenching occurs when illumination of the diode alters the Q factor of the oscillator circuit enough to stop all oscillations of the diode. Enhancement of the oscillator output can occur with illumination of the diode, but only within a limited optical power range; therefore, quenching is the dominant effect used to AM modulate an IMPATT diode oscillator.

One is control of passive components such as microstrip lines or dielectric resonators. Examples of theses are switches, phase-shifters, attenuators, and dielectric resonator oscillators (DROs). The second type is the control of active devices such as IMPATT diodes [21], TRAPATT diodes [22], MESFETs [23], and transistor oscillators [24]. Regardless of whether one is controlling passive or active devices, optical control is governed by the following: (1) illumination of photosensitive material, (2) absorption of the illumination, and (3) generation of free carriers due to the illumination.
