LightABLE successfully completes GR468 and Mil-STD Live Vibration test

LightABLE undergoing vibration testing.

Reflex Photonics proudly announces that its LightABLE™ embedded parallel optic modules (40G SR4 and 120G SR12) have proven they can maintain 10 Gbps/channel live traffic with no errors, while submitted to a severe vibration regime. The small, lightweight LightABLE with its MicroClip™ connector exceeded all expectations, demonstrating superior operation performance in harsh operating environments.
The vibration tests were conducted following the GR-468-CORE Issue 2, referring to MIL-STD-883E, Method 2007.3. This vibration test utilizes sinusoidal waveforms from 20 Hz to 2000 Hz with a peak acceleration of 20 g for 16 minutes and is repeated in all 3 axes with five different units.
This represents a bit error rate (BER) better than 10-13 using a 10 Gbps traffic on each channel for the duration of the test with no error on any channel.



General Availability of a LightABLE 40G SR4

LightABLE embedded transceiver

Reflex Photonics announces the general availability of its fully qualified LightABLE 40G SR4 embedded parallel optics transceiver designed to perform in harsh environmental conditions. The qualification was executed following the Telcordia GR-468-CORE and MIL-STD-883E standards and includes severe environmental, mechanical, and long-term reliability tests to meet the demanding requirements of D&A industry.
The LightABLE 40G SR4 is a 4-lane full duplex transceiver operating at 10 Gbps per lane offering the following features: small SWaP, operation under industrial temperature range (-40°C to 85°C), storage temperature from -57°C to 125°C, and operation with a bit error rate (BER) as low as 10-15. The optical fiber interface is a standard MT ferrule directly attached to the module for compatibility with standard die mounting processes. The LightABLE products can be surface mounted or plugged in close proximity to high-speed electronics and support high temperature reflow process; a unique feature for such products.


MicroClip Withstands 1 kg Pull Force, Exceeding Industry Standard by 2×

MicroClip™ MT ferrule  can withstand a 1 kg live traffic fiber pull test.

Reflex Photonics is proud to announce that its proprietary MicroClip™ MT ferrule design has proven it can withstand a 1 kg live traffic fiber pull test on a 12-fiber ribbon cable pigtail mated to its LightABLE™ products (40G SR4 and 120G SR12), without any signal performance degradation.
This result exceeds by a factor of 2 the requirements of Telecordia GR-468-CORE Fiber Integrity Side Pull Test and confirms the reliability of the Reflex Photonics fiber ribbon interface with the LightABLE™ and its MicroClip™ ferrule. The MicroClip™ is a low-profile, low-mass spring loaded mechanical assembly that offers a rugged optical connection that is resistant for shock and vibration and is suitable for harsh environment.
The LightABLE™ products are multichannel opt-electronic interconnects operating at 10 Gbps per lane and offering the following features: small SWaP, operation over a large temperature range (-40 °C to 85 °C) and storage temperature from -57 °C to 125 °C. The LightABLE™ can be surface mounted or plugged on a board, and will support high temperature reflow process and operation with a link budget better than 13 dB.
