LightABLE LM 50G (full duplex) and 150G

LightABLE LM 50G (full duplex) and 150 Gbps embedded transceiver with microcontroller

The LightABLE LM embedded optical modules are the most rugged devices offering high bandwidth (greater than 150 Gbps) in a chip-size package. Lanes are independent and support data-agnostic protocols, such as Ethernet, Fiberchannel, Infiniband and PCIe. LightABLE LM are used extensively in aerospace and defense for phased array radars, high resolution sensors, and high performance computers applications.
