LightConex


Amphenol Aerospace introduces LightConex™blind mate optical interconnect for 6U and 3U embedded VPX boards. LightConex™ integrates a 40Gbps optical transceiver, 120G optical transmitter, and 120G optical receiver into the module connector saving board space and eliminating cables.


The low profile backplane connector is a drop-in replacement for the standard Vita 66.4 connector. It includes springs to ensure a solid MT to MT connection under extreme shock and vibration.


The low profile module connector (6.5mm) mounts to the board via an LGA connector to facilitate optics as an option. It is offered as a 4-channel transceiver, a 12 channel transmitter or a 12-channel receiver. All module connectors operate at up to 10.3125 Gbps per lane from -40 to +85°C at ultra-low bit error rates of 10-15. The module connector also includes equalizers and pre-emphasis to compensate trace impedance.
