Cable assembly operates in extended temperature range
Supporting temperature ranges of -40 to +85 degrees C, the extended temperature version of Samtec’s FireFly active optical micro flyover cable assembly has been released.
It shares core features of the existing ECUO cable assembly. Both are designed for flexibility and are interchangeable with the FireFly copper micro flyover cable assembly using the same connector system. The extended temperature range of ETUO makes it suited for rugged applications.
The ETUO series is immediately available with 12-channel simplex or duplex configurations enabling 10.3125Gbit/s data rates/channel (123.75Gbit/s aggregate). Additional four-channel simplex and duplex configurations with extended temperature are under development and scheduled for release early 2017.
The ETUO series demonstrated error-free transmission during MIL-STD-810G shock and vibration testing. They are suitable for mid-board optical systems in commercial and military aviation, IFE, IR cameras and wireless backhaul instrumentation.
