Commercial Aerospace

Affordable, reliable, high-performance embedded optical transceivers with bandwidth up to 120 Gbps.

Engineers developing high-bandwidth commercial aerospace systems are well aware that only optical interconnects can distribute the highest quality uncompressed video with the added benefit of reducing aircraft wiring and system weight and bringing fault, EMI/EMC and lightning tolerance. The SNAP12 optical embedded transceivers are extremely rugged and deliver bandwidth in excess of 120 Gbps in a chip size part.

Typical Applications

In-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC)

  • Ability to distribute uncompressed video - the highest quality distribution possible
