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.

    New high-power connectors for demanding defense applications

    The new HBB connector takes the 500 amp version of a single-pole and replaces the internals to have five poles, each with size eight contacts and two interlocked pins. This means that in a very tight space, the customer can run five power lines which increases the connectors’ flexibility and offers the ability to run redundant lines as required.

    How Rail electrification can contribute to emissions reduction

    The great impetus given by the COP26 summit has raised the world's awareness of climate change and made it a global priority. It is today well-known that to halt the consequences of climate change we need to limit global warming to 1.5°C (34.7°F) above pre-industrial levels. As a result, all aspects of our lives are under scrutiny.
