LightABLE LM 40G (full duplex) and 120G

Embedded transceiver with microcontroller

The LightABLE LM embedded optical modules are the most rugged devices offering high bandwidth (greater than 120 Gbps) in a chip-size package. Lanes are independent and support data-agnostic protocols, such as Ethernet, Fiberchannel, Infiniband and PCIe. LightABLE LM are used extensively in aerospace and defense for phased array radars, high resolution sensors, and high performance computers applications.
