New ParaByte transceivers are rugged parallel optical devices capable of realizing 10+ GB/sec while also meeting standards for rugged performance. Through the addition of this high-speed transceiver, TE is now a one-stop source for rugged fiber optic (RFO) solutions.
The ParaByte transceiver’s parallel 12-fiber ribbon cable design is mateable and helps support speeds of up to 12.5 GB/sec per channel. Designed to fit standard interface platforms, each transceiver is ruggedized, built and qualified in accordance with rigorous MIL-STD-833, -202 and -810 specifications. Its small and dense design also saves space because these transceivers can fit inside a single VPX or VITA chassis.
“We’re proud to offer end-to-end optical solutions that now include active 12.5 GB/sec transceivers,” said Mark Benton, RFO active products manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division. “As a one-stop source for RFO solutions, we can help simplify purchasing by providing product support and warranty all through TE.”
ParaByte transceivers are available in parallel mid-board, pluggable mezzanine and VITA 66 blind mate configurations with the option for 12 Tx, 12 Rx or 4 Tx and 4 Rx modules.
