Mouser Launches the New Avago Technologies 125MBd Versatile Link Devices!

Mansfield, Texas, USA — March 29, 2011 - Mouser Electronics, Inc., regarded as a top global engineering design resource for semiconductors and electronic components, today announced it is stocking new product from Avago Technologies.
    Avago Technologies HFBR-1527ETZ and HFBR-2526ETZ Robust Versatile Link (VL) series fiber optic devices are the most cost-effective fiber-optic solution for transmission of 125MBd data over link distances of 100m. The data link consists of an Avago HFBR-1527ETZ 650nm LED transmitter and an HFBR-2526ETZ PIN/preamp receiver. These Avago Technologies Versatile Link fiber optic devices can be used with low-cost plastic or silica fiber. These components can be used at a competitive cost for high speed data links without the problems common with copper wire solutions. The HFBR-1527ETZ transmitter is a high power 650nm LED in a low cost plastic housing designed to efficiently couple power into 1mm diameter plastic optical fiber and 200┬Ám Hard Clad Silica (HCS®) fiber. With the recommended drive circuit, the LED operates at speeds from 1-125MBd. The performance of the complete data link is specified for of 0-25m with plastic fiber and 0-100m with 200m HCS fiber. The HFBR-2526ETZ is a high band width analog receiver containing a PIN photodiode and internal transimpedance amplifier. Avago Robust Versatile Link fiber optic transmitters and receivers are ideal for use in motor controller triggering and data communications and local area networks, and for reduction of lightning/voltage transient susceptibility.
