Fiber Optic Connections for MOST Networks

Fiber Optic Connections for MOST Networks

We offer a broad product range of physical layer components for devices communicating on Media Oriented System Transport (MOST) network. TE Connectivity’s (TE) fiber optics provide a complete range of components for MOST 25 and MOST 150 connectors including PCB and harness connectors, cable assemblies and processing equipment. The development of these components is backed by TE’s knowledge of optics and collaboration with Tier 1 and Tier 2 customers. TE developed an optical high speed multimedia network based on 1000 μm polymere optical fiber (POF) supporting data-speed of 25 Mbps and 150 Mbps.

Product Features

Fiber Optic Connections for MOST Networks

TE began its commitment to fiber optic technology in 1975. Since then, TE continues to provide solutions that go from the circuit board to the end-user:

  • Supports data-speed of 25 Mbps and 150 Mbps.
  • No electromagnetic interference (EMI)/electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) interferences at the cable.
  • Light weight of polymer optical fiber (POF).
  • Application is based on optical ring structure with various nodes and less cabling is required.
  • Reflow and wave soldering versions available for headers.
  • Pigtail versions have the flexibility to be soldered at the header and connector independently. This flexibility confirms that the plastic of fiber is not damaged by solder heat.
  • Wide range of connectors and headers available.
  • Cost efficient-design and process aligned for automotive market needs.
  • Modular and scalable solution that fits automotive connectivity building blocks and OEMs.
  • Cable harness product range along with repair tool set available.
