OPTO-Fire Optical Core Product Platform

U.K. designed and manufactured high reliability retrofit solution

Designed to address the harsh environment market need for a retrofit solution designed to significantly reduce size and weight requirements in airborne, naval, and renewable energy applications, the OPTO-Fire “optic core” offers a replacement for traditional copper cabling while delivering improved data transfer performance. Designed and manufactured in the U.K., this optoelectronic product platform offers some of the industry’s smallest footprints and an adaptable, protocol agnostic system design.

  • Single channel core covers data transfer rates from 20Mbps to 12.5Gbps providing future proof system integration
  • -50°C to +100°C expanded operating temperature for enhanced reliability
  • Proven error free performance over 1.1km of multimode fibre
  • Stable performance (<1dB Tx optical output) across the full operating temperature range
  • Protocol agnostic giving flexibility to system design
  • Ultra-low power consumption (100mW/channel @3.3V) for minimised power drain
  • Single, dual, triple, and quad channel units are available on same micro footprint reducing integration dimensions
  • Radiation Tolerant Circuitry for harsh environments
  • Provides a uniquely flexible core to design and integrate into communication systems & media converter style solutions where data transfer reliability is critical
  • Enables ease of use of products and services
  • Optic Core is factory configured and requires minimal external circuitry and control systems
  • Designed and manufactured in the U.K. in accordance with MIL PRF-38534 Class H & K
  • Evaluation and test boards are available by contacting us
