Moog Protokraft, a division of Moog Components Group has announced the availability of it's pluggable 10 GB serial Stiletto Series optical fiber transceivers. Stiletto series optical fiber transceivers offer significant size, space and weight savings compared to traditional SFP+ transceivers and cages. In addition, due to their unique vertical plugging features, locking mechanism by nuts and operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, they are perfectly suited for any harsh environment application.
Stiletto series optical fiber transceivers consist of optoelectronic transmitter and receiver functions integrated into a pluggable Duplex LC compliant receptacle connector. The optical transmitters are 850 nm VCSEL lasers. The transmitter input lines are driven with differential CML signals applied to the transmitter (TX+ and TX-) lines. Dual loop, temperature compensated, VCSEL drivers convert the transmitter input signals to suitable VCSEL bias and modulation currents.
Outputs from the receivers consist of differential CML data signals on the receiver (RX+ and RX-) lines. An LVTTL signal is generated on the LOS line upon receipt of an invalid incoming optical signal. The receiver data lines are squelched upon LOS assertion, preventing errant data generation when an invalid incoming optical signal is presented to the transceiver. Stiletto series optical fiber transceivers support the 2-wire serial communication protocol as defined in SFF-8472, offering end user access to device operating parameters such as transceiver temperature, laser bias current, transmitted optical power, and received optical power and transceiver supply voltage. It also defines alarm and warning flags, to alert end users when particular operating parameters are outside of a factory defined normal range.
