Avago Technologies has unveiled what it says is an ultra-low power Fast Ethernet small form-factor pluggable (SFP) fibre optic transceiver module device. According to the company, the AFBR-57E6APZ is geared for industrial automation, controls and networking applications.

The device features a redesigned chip set for LED control, diagnostic monitoring interface (DMI) and signal processing, which significantly reduces the module power dissipation, the company noted. Compared with the previous generation device, the AFBR-57E6APZ consumes 42 per cent less in power while delivering superior electrical and optical performance, added Avago.


The module features a power consumption of 255mW (typ), 405mW (max) and supports an industrial operating temperature of -40C to 85C. It can link distances up to 2km using 50/125?m or 62.5/125?m multimode fibre, and flaunts a built-in DMI providing real time information on temperature, LED bias current, LED average output power and receiver average input power.

The AFBR-57E6APZ is compatible with SFF-8074i and SFF-8472 MSA specifications, as well as 100BASE-FX version of IEEE 802.3u. It also boasts a robust, long-life LED technology preventing catastrophic failure of the laser like sudden death or mirror degradation, Avago stated.

The AFBR-57E6APZ is priced starting at $32.10 in 1,000 piece quantity. Samples and production quantities are available through the Avago direct sales channels and worldwide distribution partners.
