Rugged Interconnects for Harsh Environments eBook

While rarely relevant in the applications discussed here, it is still helpful to know optical fiber is robust enough to fly at a very high level — for example, meeting the SpaceVPX VITA 66.5 standard for high-density optical MT interface modules. Fiber optic transceivers are available in a parallel optical design capable of achieving 25+ Gb/s while also meeting MIL-Spec standards for robustness. Today’s advanced optical fiber technologies offer a wide range of robust building blocks that allow designers

to find solutions to meet demanding eVTOL aircraft or satellite requirements. Close interaction between systems engineers, network architects, electrical wiring interconnect system (EWIS) designers, and qualified manufacturers early in the design process will often reveal that optical fiber provides surprising advantages.
