TE Connectivity offers ruggedized optical backplane interconnect supporting VITA 66.1 standard

Image of TE Connectivity's Optical BackplaneTE Connectivity’s (TE) ruggedized optical backplane interconnect 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 accommodating up to 24 fiber paths.
