Fibre-optic transmitters engineered for shorter lead times

TT Electronics is launching the OPF350A and OPF352A evolved fibre optic transmitter solutions based on 850nm LED technology.

Engineered for field-proven reliability and consistent high-output performance, the new devices enable equipment makers to reduce turnaround times and simplify procurement and planning. Lead-times for the solutions are also improved to ten weeks, says TT.

The OPF350A and OPF352A are equivalent alternatives to the existing OPF370A and OPF372A products and come with the same ST-style package. The new fibre optic transmitters are also said to improve performance with up to 8% more optical power with various fibre sizes such as 50/125μm-200/300μm.

The new devices are suitable for telecom and data-communication applications at up to 35MHz.

The OPF350A in TO-18 package is chosen for applications that demand high thermal stability across the industrial temperature range of -40°C to 100°C, and offers an alternative to the OPF370A in addition to shorter lead times.

The OPF352A in the ST-style receptacle is suitable for PCB or panel mounting. It is supplied pre-mounted, pre-tested with fibre to assure performance, and ready to use, with essential fixings and a protective dust cap included.
