We talk about FireFly™ a lot around here, and why not? With the industry’s leading miniature footprint enabling maximum signal density and SI over longer distances, we assume you want to hear about it.
FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™ provides high-performance versatility by taking the data connection “
Available in copper and optical, there is a solution for any application whether cost is a factor or greater reach is required. Both systems use the same two-piece, low insertion force connector system with surface mount tails to eliminate through-holes in the board. FireFly™ is a simple to use
From high-density and rugged end options to a choice of fiber types and heat sinks for various cooling processes, FireFly™ has incredible flexibility for a variety of applications. There are also several versions of FireFly™:
ECUO: FireFly™ Optical
- ETUO: Extended Temperature FireFly™ (-40 ºC to +85 ºC)
PCUO: PCIe®-Over-Fiber FireFly™ (Gen 3; Gen 4 in development) PTUO: Extended Temperature, PCIe®-Over-Fiber FireFly™ (-40 ºC to +85 ºC and -5 ºC to +85 ºC)
- PCOA: PCIe®-Over-Fiber Adaptor Card with FireFly™ (Gen 3; Gen 4 in development)
ECUE/ECUE-2: FireFly™ Standard Copper (14 Gbps) and Optimized Copper (28 Gbps)
- PCUE: PCIe®-Over-FireFly™ Copper (Gen 4 compatible)
Characterization and Development Kits featuring FireFly™ optical are also available. See samtec.com/kits for information.
