US Conec Ltd.Request Info
US Conec has introduced the Prizm LightTurn connector, a next-generation photonic turn parallel optic interconnect solution. Designed as a miniature detachable connector for Avago Technologies’ new MicroPOD 120-Gb/s board-mounted parallel optic modules, the connector provides passive alignment and retention features that allow multiple rematings perpendicular to the printed circuit board. The 7.4 x 5.7-mm device consists of a multifiber ferrule with a photonic turn total internal reflection lens array accepting cleaved fibers and a single outer housing. The use of the connector in combination with US Conec’s MTP brand multifiber push-on style connector provides an increase in card edge port density compared with using small-form-factor pluggable transceivers, conventional array transceivers or parallel active optical cables on the card edge. The connector is suitable for use in applications including the telecom, datacom and high-speed computercom markets.
