Senko (booths 2584, 2811) will show its new range of Micro LC connectors. The simple bayonet mechanism on the Micro LC connector eliminates the need for finger access to the latch mechanism, allowing connectors to be mounted much closer together than before. Attendees will have the opportunity to see how Senko’s unique design of Micro LC connector is ideal for behind-the-wall applications, plug-and-play modules, and on-board optics, where space saving is important. Using a conventional LC ferrule with spring-loaded design, the Micro LC connector also mates with standard LC connectors.
As data demand ramps ever higher, researchers are looking to innovative amplifier designs to help transport a broader light spectrum through optical fibres, finds Andy Extance
