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 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.
