FCI MEG-Array® Connectors Perform up to 28 Gbps for Next-Generation Pluggable Optical Transceivers

FCI, a leading manufacturer of connectors and interconnect systems, has announced that its MEG-Array® Connectors, in 4mm connection height, can now be recommended for next-generation pluggable, optical transceivers because they perform at the higher speeds of 28 Gbps per electrical lane.

"The MEG-Array® Connector design is a successful, legacy electrical interface to PAROLI, SNAP-12, POP4, PPOD embedded optical modules and 300 pin MSA transponders," said David Hansen, FCI Product Manager. "This level of performance will allow MEG-Array® connector customers to reach new speeds in high-speed telecom, datacom and instrumentation applications with a trusted, proven connector."

The 28 Gbps high-speed links through 4mm stack height connectors meet/exceed requirements of the OIF Short Reachspecification (CEI-28G-SR) for insertion loss (IL), insertion loss deviation (ILD), return loss (RL) and integrated cross-talk noise (ICN). In addition, eye patterns, bit-error rate (BER) and bathtub curve (BTC) simulations demonstrate 28 Gbps performance even without signal conditioning.

The MEG-Array® connector is designed to meet the needs of high-speed, high density applications. The combination of multiple stack heights (4mm to 14mm) and multiple sizes (81 signals to 528 signals) optimizes design flexibility.
