State-of-the-art EMI containment and thermal performance for communications and networking.

Abstract

As pluggable I/O data rates increase, the need to effectively limit EMI emissions and heat generated by fiber optic transceivers simultaneously arises. Typically this is done through an EMI containment vehicle such as a sheet metal cage or die cast housing. This article will focus on I/O connectivity solutions that address both EMI containment and thermal performance issues in order to provide a state-of-the-art solution to TE Connectivity’s communication and networking OEM customers.
