DC to 50 Megabaud Versatile Link Transmitter, 30° Tilted Package

Currently Viewing:

The AFBR-1644Z transmitter utilizes a 650 nm LED source with integrated optics and driver IC for efficient coupling into 1 mm Polymer Optical Fiber (POF). The 30° Tilted Package provides assistance with cable routing by reducing cable/connector strain relief for systems that require cables to be bent upwards/downwards to route between boards/systems.

The transmitter input is compatible with TTL logic families. The transmitter operates any type of signal from DC up to 50 MBd at distances up to 50 meters with 1 mm POF.

The transmitter is a 4-pin device, packed in 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.
