The fiber optic ribbon cable interconnect feeds through the backplane to removable system modules using MT ferrules. The VITA 66.1 modules are full width and accommodate two MT ferrules, and the VITA 66.4 modules are half width and hold a single MT ferrule. Two VITE 66.4 modules can fit into the same space as a VITA 66.1 module.
Designed for rugged embedded computing applications, the optical modules are compatible with VPX and other high-performance standards. The protective cover is made of anti-static material, and the connector mounting screws contain a pre-applied anti-vibration material to help withstand vibration. The modules have an operating temperature range of –20° C to 85° C and can withstand 100 cycles, as tested per EIA-455-21.
