FCI expands fiber-optic connector, cable assembly lines for telecom, datacom
New optical couplers and on-board transceivers meet telecom and datacom requirements.
Connector and cable assembly systems manufacturer FCI has expanded its optical product portfolio to include optical couplers and on-board transceivers that meet telecom and datacom requirements.
The company says its advanced multimode and single-mode optical tap, splitter and star couplers deliver high-performance in harsh environments. Suitable for telecom, datacom, and military applications, the optical couplers feature ruggedized housings that isolate the fused fiber area and simplistic connector terminations.
Additionally, FCI's new miniature 2x12 channel (TX=RX) single on-board transceiver system is designed to support next generation Infiniband and Ethernet standards as well as other emerging intra box optical/electrical specifications.
FCI provides two low-profile pluggable electrical connector options: A 1.0mm pitch LGA/BGA interface and a 1.27mm BGA/BGA Meg-Array connector. The on-board transceiver system has a small footprint to save precious PCB real estate. Different transceiver heat sink options are available to meet thermal application requirements.
FCI demonstrated its optical couplers and on-board transceiver systems at the recent OFC/NFOEC 2013 show in Anaheim, CA.
