  1. Optical power measured from polished end of a 1mm core plastic optical fiber 1 mlong, NA=.47 and LED IF =20mA
  2. Rise and fall times measured from 10% to 90% and 90% to 10% points
  3. Exact operating distance depends on photodetector selected and, in some cases, electrical bandwidth of accompanying circuits
  4. Distance when mated with MIC-D97 Photologic detector
  5. When matched with MIC-D98 photologic detector
  6. Optical power measured from polished end of 1000 _m plastic optical fiber connected to Helium Neon laser porducing radiation in 632.8 nm wavelengths
  7. λ = 660 nm
  8. Threshold is optical power when photologic switches from low to high or high to low
  9. Has interanl gain control circuitry that makes it unsuitable for applications under 4 Mbps
