Interface Concept, a leading developer and manufacturer of high performance boards and systems for civil and military embedded applications, is launching the Optical FMC IC-OPT-FMCPa, a new generation of FMC board. This new VITA 57.1/57.4 compliant FMC offers up to 120 Gbps of full-duplex bandwidth and can be used with all the FPGA Front End Processing board of Interface Concept.
Reflex Photonics is an advanced developer of rugged high-speed optical transceivers. The LightABLE™ LH Series includes a 12 channel transmitter, a 12 channel receiver, and a 4 channel transceiver. They operate at 10 Gbps/channel in commercial, extended, and industrial operating temperatures. These components can be mounted directly on a high-speed printed circuit board via surface mount technology or via a MEG-array connector.

 

Thierry Wastiaux, Vice President Sales at Interface Concept announced today they have chosen Reflex Photonics’ LightABLE LH SR12 as the embedded optical transmitter and receiver for their new generation of FMC Board.

“We are pleased to partner with Reflex Photonics in the development of our FMC IC-OPT-FMCa board. The LightABLE LH SR12 delivers high speed combined to very low BER and small SWAP-C. It allows us to design a new generation of rugged boards that offers wide bandwidth in High Performance Embedded Computer (HPEC) systems”

Noel Dubé, president at Reflex Photonics, commented:

“We are very proud that Interface Concept has chosen our LightABLE LH embedded optical transmitters and receivers for their new generation of FMX Boards. These boards require transmitters that deliver high speed and perform well in harsh environment. The fact that Interface Concept designed their new FMC board using our products is a great endorsement”.
