LightABLE 10G LM Series 4TRX, 12TX, and 12RX

Embedded transceiver with microcontroller

The low profile LightABLE 10G LM Series module (5 mm) is offered as a (4+4)-lane transceiver, a 12-channel transmitter, or a 12-channel receiver. The modules can be mounted directly upon a high-speed printed circuit board via surface mountable 1.27 mm pitch BGA or via a MEG-array connector. All modules operate at 10.3125 Gbps per channel over a recommended operating temperature range of −40 °C to 85 °C at ultra-low bit error rates of 10-12.
