AFBR-0545Z Media Converter Kit for the AFBR-5972Z Fiber Optic Transceiver

Currently Viewing:

The Broadcom AFBR-5972Z transceiver module enables system designer to implement a 100 Mb/s Fast Ethernet data link over standard plastic optical fiber (POF). The AFBR-0545Z Media Converter Kit allows a system designer to quickly evaluate AFBR-5972Z transceiver module performance.

The two boards in the Kit provide an easy solution to convert CAT-5 Ethernet to plastic optical fiber and back again. This allows an evaluation of Ethernet running over up to 50 meters of plastic optical fiber.

The transceiver module can be connected with Broadcom Versatile Link connectors (AFBR-4526Z).The AFBR-5972Z module is lead free and RoHS compatible.


The AFBR-0545Z media converter kit includes:
  • Media converter board (2 pieces)
  • 12V DC power supply (2 pieces) plus power supply adapter (5 types, 2 pieces each)
  • 2 meter POF Cable  with duplex connector for the AFBR-5972Z (P/N HFBR-RSD002Z)
  • CAT 5 patch cable (2 pieces)
  • AFBR-0545Z application note
