Ruggedized Media Converters, Ethernet Switches, Active Contacts, and High Speed/High Density Connectors
Integrated Solutions Products combines our most advanced technologies with our long history of connector design and development in the Military and Aerospace markets to provide custom products that perfectly match future application needs in avionics, C4ISR, space systems, and embedded systems. Our portfolio is constantly expanding.
We have a wide range of Media Converters which are integrated connectors that convert to fiber optics or between protocols. Many use a common D38999 Series III interface. Our Agnostic Media Converters include copper-to-fiber media converters that work across a variety of protocols, either single-mode or multi-mode, at speeds up to 10 Gbps. Our Ethernet Media Converters include stand-alone, embedded, or 3U/6U VPX and work with many protocols -- 1GBase-T, 10GBase-T, Fiber XAUI, 10GBase-SR, and others. Video Media Converters handle both fiber and copper DVI and SDI conversion.
Our rapidly expanding Ethernet Switches product line come in a number of form factors -- 3U and 6U VPX with up to 144 channels, 32-Channel Ethernet 10G Switches, and Rugged Standalone 120-Channel Ethernet Switchboxes. These can support speeds between 10G and 25 Gbps.
Active Fiber Optic and High Speed Contacts
Active Contacts -- both High Speed and Fiber Optic -- have recently been developed. The Active Fiber Optic Contacts are Quadraxial contacts that have embedded fiber optic transmitting and receiving; speeds up to 4.25 Gbps and 10.3125 Gbps. Active High Speed Contacts are Quadraxial contacts that embed boosting, conditioning, transforming, and other value-add functionality to support USB 3.0 and 1G Ethernet.
The newest High Speed/High Density Connectors in the Integrated Solutions Product portfolio include the Centaur Series which combines our extensive legacy of Mil-Spec connectors with the latest in high-speed technology, providing both a durable and high-bandwidth system that supports data rates up to 56 Gbps in a lightweight, aluminum D38999 Series III shell; the Centaur PCB Series which is an extension of the Centaur Series, but has a compliant eye press-fit tail option and supports data rates up to 10 Gbps with options of 32 to 40 differential pairs to connect straight to a PC board; and the Leap-AHRD High Speed Optical Module which, at 300Gb/s, is faster, smaller, more cost and power-efficient than most conventional datacenter interconnects. It requires only one square inch of board space and 5.4W of power. It is capable of speeds up to 25Gbps and distances up to 100 meters.
