DC to 10 Megabaud Versatile Link Fiber Optic Analog Transmitter, Vertical Package for 1 mm POF

Currently Viewing:

The AFBR-1539Z analog transmitter utilizes a 650nm LED source in a housing designed to efficiently couple into 1mm Polymer Optical Fiber (POF). Links up to 50 meters are supported with 1mm POF. It is designed to interoperate with Broadcom´s HFBR-25xxZ, AFBR-25xxZ and AFBR-26xxZ receivers.

The transmitter is a 4-pin device packaged in a vertical Versatile Link housing. Versatile Link components can be interlocked (N-plexed together) to minimize space and to provide dual connections with the duplex connectors. Various simplex and duplex connectors as well as POF cables are available for Versatile Link components.
