Radiation-resistant optical transceivers

The SpaceABLE® SM radiation resistant transceivers are engineered to withstand radiation doses >100 krad (Si). The SpaceABLE SM embedded optical modules are rugged devices offering high bandwidth (greater than 120 Gbps) in a chip-size package. All devices are tested following ECSS process and lot acceptance testing, and component pre-screening is done for every batch of transceivers sold for this application.
