Fiber Optic Products
CMC Electronics offers a variety of fiber optic solutions for various applications. Typical packaging options include:
These packages may contain Emitters or Receivers. Emitters such as Edge Emission (EE) lasers or Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) with single or multiple junctions for high slope efficiency are available over a wide range of wavelengths. Both APDs and PINs are available in Silicon (Si) or Indium Gallium Arsenide (InGaAs) material as single or multiple element components.
For additional general information, refer to the Microelectronics Capability Brochure and Datasheets
Vertical Pigtail Package
CMC Electronics’ Vertical Pigtail Package is a hermetic feedthrough fiber pigtail technology package for Electro-Optic receiver or emitter products. This packaging option offers high reliability in harsh environmental conditions. It can be used as a drop-in replacement for most circular TO-can glass window products using a relay lens assembly for fiber optic coupling.
Design possibilities include adding electronics and adjusting the package size (height and/or diameter) to accommodate thermo-electrical cooling, Bi-Directional (BiDi) transceiver, etc. and adaptable to various fiber geometries.
Maintenance-Free Hermetic Feedthrough Fiber Pigtailed Electro-Optic Sensor
Transceiver, Single RX/TX
Esterline CMC Electronics’ Fiber Optic Transceiver 276-339804 Series incorporates proprietary ruggedization techniques suitable for applications requiring 100% reliability in harsh environmental conditions. Housed in a shielded stainless steel housing package, this transceiver has gigabits per second capability.
Transceiver, Quadruple RX/TX
CMC Electronics offers ruggedized, multi-channel Fiber Optic Transceivers using a proprietary technique for applications requiring 100% reliability in extremely harsh environmental conditions. Housed in a compact-sized co-fired ceramic package, this quadruple transceiver has the following capabilities:
Also available: custom Bi-Directional (BiDi) transceiver option.
Lateral Pigtail Receiver
CMC Electronics’ lateral pigtail receivers use an InGaAs APD with a GasFET cascode configuration transimpedance amplifier in a DIL-14 package. The amplifier uses an internal feedback resistor with an overload input protection circuit for fast recovery. This module is optimized for Continuous Wave (CW) type of operation into 100 Ohms impedance load.
