FireFly™ mid-board optical flyovers and PCIe® Gen 3 compatible active optical cable systems, including micro backplane and ganged passive optical solutions.
FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™ is a future-proof, inside-the-box mid board optics interconnect solution, with performance to 28 Gbps in x12 unidirectional or bidirectional designs. It is the first interconnect system that gives the designer a choice of using either micro footprint optical or copper interconnects to meet today’s data rate requirements and the next generation. FireFly™ enables chip-to-chip, board-to-board, on-board and system-to-system connectivity using the same connector system for both electrical and optical systems.
Future-proof system easily upgrades from copper to optical using the same connector system. Highest 14 Gbps bandwidth density available.
PCIe® active optical cable assemblies in x4 and x8 form factors with four independent, full-duplex optical channels to support Gen 3 data rates up to 100 meters. Features a fully integrated electrical to optical conversion engine available in full active optical cables with host and target, or half active optical cables with MTP end option.
High-speed active optical cable assemblies supporting PCIe® Gen 3 with a cable reach to 100 meters.
Passive optical cable systems support high-density applications with MTP end options and a single or double port adaptor for mating. Cable assembly available in 12 or 24 fibers and keying options on the adaptor for proper alignment.
This passive optical system features a patch cable with MTP end options and a single or double port adaptor with keying options for proper alignment.
