HICKORY, N.C., April 5, 2010 — US Conec has announced the introduction and immediate availability of 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 novel retention features allowing multiple rematings perpendicular to the printed circuit board. The 7.4 × 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 termination is simple, low cost, requires no polishing of fibers and provides easy testing and good coupling to Avago’s high-bandwidth mini-parallel optic modules. The development of this solution by the two companies ensures a seamless and consistent connector-to-module interface.

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 to using small form factor pluggable transceivers, conventional array transceivers, or parallel active optical cables on the card edge. The connector is suitable for use across multiple applications including telecom, datacom and the emerging high-speed computercom markets. The company will sell components to cable assembly makers and will provide training and support worldwide for equipment and systems makers.
