Mid Board Optics Systems

FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™ is a future-proof, inside-the-box mid-board optics interconnect solution, with performance to 28 Gbps per lane and a path to 56 Gbps. Designed for the interchangeability of copper and optical using the same high-performance connector set, this easy to assemble system improves signal integrity and increases signal path length to meet today’s data rate requirements and the next generation. With an industry leading miniature footprint, FireFly™ accommodates greater density and closer proximity to the IC for chip-to-chip, board-to-board, on-board and system-to-system connectivity.
