Non-hermetic fiber optic transceivers for space applications
Author(s): Chuck Tabbert

Paper Abstract

There is a commercial trend in high data-rate systems to place optical components in close proximity to the data source/sink. This trend forgoes the traditional module packaging approach to create compact components that are embedded near or within the package of high-performance ASICs. This approach reduces the power consumption and electro-magnetic interference (EMI) effects by reducing the length of copper interconnect signal paths. We present an overview of commercial trends and methods for fielding this technology within spacecraft.
