Mouser Electronics announced a global distribution agreement with Formerica Optoelectronics. The Formerica portfolio consists of optical transceivers, active optical cables (AOC)/fanouts, optical bypass modules (OBM), fiber channel products, and serial digital interface (SDI) transceivers. Formerica’s Fiber channel optical transceivers are hot-pluggable, Gigabit small form factor optical modules (SFP+) with built-in digital diagnostic functions and LC duplex receptacles.
The devices are enclosed in an all-metal housing to provide superior electromagnetic interference (EMI) performance, are RoHS compliant, and function using a single 3.3 V power supply. Target applications for the transceivers include high-speed storage area networks, 10GBASE-SR Ethernet and 4G/8G/16G fiber channel systems. The 100G optical transceivers support 100 gigabits per second (Gbps) data rate links with a reach of up to 150 meters (via OM4).
The transceivers feature low power consumption and use a standard 12/8 lane optical fiber with MPO pluggable optical connector. Like the fiber channel optical transceivers, the 100G products are hot-pluggable, RoHS compliant, and have a case operating temperature range from 0 to 70 degrees Celsius. The transceivers are compliant with 100G Ethernet IEEE 802.3bm 100GBASE SR4 and SFF-8665 (QSFP28 Solution; Revision 1.8) standards. Target applications include 100GBASE Ethernet Links, InfiniBand (IB) QDR, DDR, and EDR interconnects.
