Packaging, Materials & Interconnects: High-Density MT Cable Assemblies Boost Front-Panel Real Estate

Novel high-density MT cable assemblies create multiple space-saving options on the front panel by making configurations up to 72 fibers possible while reducing installation times and lowering applied costs. They use the 72-fiber MT ferrule with both MTP connectors and the company's high-density panel-mount array connectors. They're well suited for parallel optic transceiver interconnections, optoelectronic modules, pc cards, patch panels, optical backplanes, switches and routers, and data-communication centers. Optical insertion loss is 1.0 dB across all 72 channels. Pricing starts at $600. Lead time is four to six weeks.
