As data rates increase, trace lengths on PCBs decrease. Samtec’s FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™ offers the flexibility of using optical and copper interconnects interchangeably with the same connector system.

Samtec’s 28 Gbps FireFly FMC+ Module provides up to 448 Gbps full-duplex bandwidth over up to 16 channels from an FPGA to an industry-standard multi-mode fiber optic cable. The FireFly optical engines provide adjustable power levels to support cable lengths up to 100 m.

The Samtec 28 Gbps FireFly FMC+ Module supports AI/ML, Data Center, High Performance Computing and FPGA-to-FPGA protocols including Ethernet, InfiniBand™, PCIe, Fibre Channel and Aurora.
