Radiation Tolerant Media Converter

New platforms and system upgrades are most likely required to endure a nuclear even or radiation from space and or high altitude. Our CTF-QUAD integrated products for 850nm and 1300nm multi-mode optics are completely tested along with the electronics for use in these systems. Any customers involved in high altitude platforms, space applications, or any application involved in warfare should take notice and be targets for our qualified technology. Along with qualification data in vibration, temperature, shock, and others, HSS had compelling value proposition for media conversion, high speed copper, and fiber optic product line.


  • CTF-Quad electronics and optical sub assemblies were tested in the radiation environment
  • Optical sub assemblies and electronics for 850nm multi-mode optics for up to 4.25Gbps signaling
  • Optical sub assemblies and electronics for 1300nm (LED) multi-mode optics for speeds from 1 to 150Mbps

CTF-Quadrax Based Media Converter Solutions

CTF-Quadrax technology is the embedding of a transmit or recieve optical sub-assembly into a Quadrax contact. Quadrax is a size 8 keyed contact with 4 or 8 pins used in high speed copper signaling applications. The embedding of a TOSA/TOSA into this component provides the ability to utilize a Quadrax connector for media converter applications. ROSA/TOSA components are available in all major fiber protocols to include 850nm multi-mode, 1300nm multi-mode (typically used in 100-Base-FX applications), 1310nm single mode, and other varieties for support of a plethora of interfaces customers are utilizing in platforms and systems.

Rugged USB & DVI Fiber Extender

Amphenol High Speed Solutions is pleased to introduce the industry's first Rugged USB and DVI extender hardware set (KVM-Keyboard, Video and Mouse) designed to extend the interfaces. The integrated set contains a transmitter module, receiver module, and two mating cables for 1000+ foot extension of four channels of USB 2.0 and two channels of single link digital DVI with the highest resolutions. The DVI and USB channels are converted to single mode fiber for the extension in length. The solutions are powered by 28 Volts and meant for stand-alone integration.



  • Rugged DVI Commercial Connectors
  • Fiber 38999 with rugged single mode optical sub-assemblies for transmit/receive
  • Fiber 38999 with rugged single mode optical sub-assemblies for Ethernet extension of 4X USB 2.0 channels
  • 28V input power / copper USB 2.0 interface

Rugged Multi-Channel RS-422

RS-422Amphenol High Speed Solutions is pleased to introduce a new multi-channel RS-422 data concentrator and extender. This is a stand-alone unit with 13-32VDC power interface to the system. Its 6X bi-directional channels of RS-422 are electro-optically isolated from system interfaces and concentrated onto a single channel of 850nm multi-mode fiber optics at 1Gbps. Two units can be connected for seamless plug and play extension of the RS-422 interfaces. A separate RS-422 interface from the unit gives built-in-test and diagnostics information.



  • MIL-DTL-38999 with power and RS-422 interfaces (all copper)

  • Rugged and stand-alone unit for plug and play system solution
  • Fiber MIL-DTL-38999 for concentrated RS-422 interfaces onto 850nm milti mode fiber (unit is easily configured for single mode if needed)


Amphenol Aerospace adds ARINC-600 CTF QUAD to the CTF (Copper to Fiber) Media Converter Product Family. This product line utilizes standard quadrax receptacle connectors and inserts. The ARINC-600 CTF QUADCTF-ARINC-600-QUAD is a fiber to copper and copper to fiber media conversion in quadrax form factor pins for standard D38999 quadrax insert arrangements.


  • Quadrax form factor embedded fiber optic transmitters and receivers
  • Replace any quadrax pin in receptacle and configure with media conversion copper to fiber and fiber to copper
  • Utilizes standard quadrax receptacle connectors and inserts
  • Integrated PCB to modulate or receive modulated data
  • Reduce board space by relying on electronics being incorporated within contact
  • AC coupling caps included for signal lines


  • Industry standard 1.25mm fiber optic ferrules (LC & ARINC-801)
  • Plug/socket side utilizes quadrax socket to ARINC-801 pin adapter for system fiber connection


  • Speed support from DC to 10 Gbps in both transmitter and receiver
  • PCB lead connection to customer circuit board or PCB lead connection to flex with nano


  • Industry standard rugged transmitters and receivers -40˚C to +85˚C
  • Components epoxy sealed in place
