Small Form Factor • Next Gen Speeds • Flyover®

FireFly Micro Flyover System™ takes the data connection “off board” for up to 28 Gbps per lane with a path to 112 Gbps PAM4 via optical cable – or copper for cost optimization – using the same surface mount connector system. The system’s miniature footprint allows for increased density close to the data source, simplified PCB and reduced power dissipation. FireFly interconnects include PCIe®-Over-Fiber solutions and rugged options ideal for harsh environments.
