Fiber Optic Transceivers

Fiber Optic Transceivers

Micropac transceivers and media converters are designed for space and satellite harsh environments. We offer radiation-hardened, space-qualified, fiber-optic intensity modulated direct detection transceivers and media converters for multigigabit connectivity on new and legacy payload systems from geostationary to low-Earth orbit.

Micropac’s rigorously developed, leading-edge portfolio of MIL-PRF-38534 qualified hybrid microcircuit transceivers and media converters is an effective means of mitigating the risks associated with orbiting space-based hardware.

Our portfolio addresses the unique challenges of critical space environments like radiation, thermal gradients, vibration and outgassing. These transceivers have hermetic packaging and flight rugged detachable FO connectors and stand alone point of load (POL) DC-DC converters for standard power bus interfaces.

Micropac’s flight heritage includes the ISS Cloud-Aerosol Transport System (CATS) Lidar payload interface transceiver launched September 2014 and with a unique SpaceWire media converter that enables existing qualified legacy hardware to be interconnected with optical fiber.

Micropac offers multiple package options for FO transceivers that include single lane, parallel and free space (boxto-box) packages. Our common device architecture allow for a common footprint for multiple media transport solutions.
