Connection type
blind mate


The LightCONEX® active blind mate optical interconnect is a revolutionary solution for VPX systems that includes a fixed plug-in module connector and a floating backplane connector compatible with proposed VITA 66.5 standard. The backplane connector has a spring-loaded MT to ensure a secure MT to MT mating connection under extreme shock and vibration conditions. Features & Benefits - Optical interconnect: Mechanical Transfer (MT) ferrule with linear array of 12 or 24 parallel multimode fibers - Secure connection: Spring within the backplane optical cable provides the mating force between plug-in module and backplane MTs - Standards: Designed following VITA 66.5 standard (forthcoming) - Maintenance: Supports two-level maintenance - Blind mate: Eliminates fiber handling and frees up space on host board - Robustness: Tested for vibration and shock over industrial temperature range, exposure to humidity, salt fog, sand and dust, mate/un-mate cycles, following military specs Applications - VPX single board computing - C4ISR embedded systems - AESA radars - Ethernet switches, high BW communication links
