The Ruggedized Optical Backplane Interconnect (Supports VITA 66.1 Standard) system provides a high-density, blind-mate optical interconnect in a backplane/daughtercard configuration. The fiber optic (ribbon) cable interconnect is fed through the backplane to removable system modules using MT ferrules.
TE offers the optical system in both a receptacle (backplane) and mating plug (daughtercard) connectors which interconnect up to two MT ferrules, each accomodating up to 24 fiber paths. Other options are available using industry standard ARINC 801 fiber terminus and TE’s Expanded Beam, ProBeam interface in a four-fiber configuration.
