High-speed interconnect backplane meets VITA 66.1 standard for harsh environments

Molex : 09 September, 2013  (New Product)
Molex is demonstrating a complete end to end 100G link operating at 25.78Gb/s per lane during the 2013 ECOC exhibition. The demonstration showcases Molex PSM4 (Parallel Single Mode Quad 4) Active Optical Pigtails, PCB interconnects and blind-mate expanded beam backplane connector systems. Supporting 100 Gb/s Ethernet and 100 Gb/s Inifiniband* Enhanced Data Rate applications, the PSM4 Active Optical Cable and zQSFP+ electrical interconnects transmit rates up to 4km with excellent cooling, unparalleled signal integrity, superior EMI protection and low power consumption.
High-speed interconnect backplane meets VITA 66.1 standard for harsh environments
Fully compliant with the ANSI-ratified 66.1 specification, the compact VITA 66.1 optical dual MT backplane solution ensures VPX system engineers optimal simplicity in design and functionality for harsh environments. The system meets the defined requirements outlined by VITA 66.0 for blind mate fibre optic interconnects used with VITA 46 VPX architecture based backplanes and plug-in modules and features a robust aluminium housing to withstand extreme temperature ranges, as well as shock and vibration environments. The Molex VITA 66.1 connector system incorporates proprietary ferrule retaining features to streamline tool-less MT assembly installation and maintenance.
Also, the newly developed 200/230 optical fibre for data communications and factory automation and process control exhibits strength well over industry standard of 150kpsi. With typical attenuation of less than 6dB/km at 850nm and less than 10dB/km at 650nm, this fibre is extremely dependable even in harsh environmental conditions. It is also crimp-and-cleave compatible and Euro RoHS compliant.
A wide range of Plastic Optical Fibre (POF) cable assemblies, simplex or duplex, is available from Molex suitable for consumer (set top boxes), medical and industrial applications (wind turbines, drives, power transmission and distribution/smart grid, sensors, networking and factory automation). For galvanic isolation and data communication purposes, POF cable assemblies are available to specific lengths, guaranteed operating temperature range options, different jacket types with or without UL certification and different connector types. Combined with the 650nm SMI 106108 transceiver series, Molex offers a complete solution for Ethernet applications (10-100 Mbps) and any proprietary protocols (up to 250 Mbps) over a maximum of 50m.
