LightABLE 28G LL Series 4TRX, 12TX, and 12RX

Embedded transceiver

The LightABLE 28G LL Series low profile screw-in module mounts to the board via an LGA connector (interposer). It is offered as a either a (4+4)-lane transceiver (100G full-duplex) or as separate 12-channel transmitter and 12-channel receiver modules (300G half-duplex as a pair) that operate at up to 28 Gbps per channel from −40 °C to 85 °C at ultra-low bit error rates of 10-12.
