Picolight Inc. has partnered with Samtec Inc., a supplier of PCB-level interconnects, to offer complete pluggable optical transceiver solutions aimed to simplify customer purchasing, inventory control, and assembly by including all necessary optics, connectors and cages from a single supplier.

"The installation of the optics on a PCB requires the transceiver, cage and connector," said Warner Andrews, VP of marketing for Picolight. "Samtec's surface mount SFP connector combined with our cage and transceiver is a solution for customers and their contract manufacturers."

Picolight's cages can now be purchased with its 1Gbps and 2Gbps serial short-wavelength transceivers or 1Gbps serial long-wavelength transceivers. These transceivers will be combined with Samtec's MECT 20-pin surface-mount connectors to create a complete solution that is optimized for all small form factor pluggable (SFP) applications including Fibre Channel, Gigabit Ethernet, and SONET. These solutions fully comply with the SFP multi-source agreement for pluggable transceiver modules.
