Compact Endurance® 125Mb/s to 14Gb/s 550m Optical Transceiver for Commercial and Datacom Applications
Endurance® is a family of compact transceiver modules designed for Fibre Channel and Ethernet optical data links. It utilizes Finisar’s internally developed ICs, which enables the compact form-factor and low power consumption. Because Endurance has two through-hole mounting posts and the pins are soldered directly to the board, it does not use a host cage. The compact module saves valuable board space and allows multiple of them to be mounted side-by-side on a Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) for high-density port counts. The simple serial interface is independent of protocol and can thus be used in a wide range of applications. Digital diagnostic functions for monitoring and control of the module are provided via a 2-wire serial interface.
