BF4M Series Optical Connector System

Hirose's BF4M series of optical connectors reduces the required PCB mounting space

Image of Hirose's BF4M Series Optical Connector SystemHirose's unidirectional active optical connector system features a built-in E/O on the Tx (transmit) end and an O/E on the Rx (receiver) end. The BF4M optical connector system converts a balanced high-speed differential electrical signal on a PCB at one end into an MM optical signal for transmission down a very thin flexible FO cable, and then converts it back into an electrical signal on the other end. The BF4M series is designed as a separate plug and receptacle that solders to the PCB to eliminate the thermal issues associated with soldering the E/O and O/E devices directly to the PCB.
