PRIZM® LightTurn® Fiber Optic Cable Assemblies

MT Right Angle Connector

The US Conec Ltd.’s PRIZM® LightTurn® is a right angle connector that interfaces with the Avago MicroPOD™, MiniPOD™ and other high density transceivers.

The PRIZM® LightTurn® 12-fiber connector consists of a multi-fiber floating ferrule with a photonic TIR lens enclosed in a protective housing. The unique perpendicular mating capability increases real-estate opportunities on dense printed circuit boards by improving cable management and allowing for tight spacing of transceiver modules internal to the board rather than using very limited and in high demand parallel edge-mount solutions.

The cable assembly will connect PRIZM® to the MTP. The PRIZM® LightTurn™ is available in 2mm round jacketed and bare ribbon fiber cable assemblies. Assemblies utilize 50 µm multimode fiber available in OM2, OM3 and OM4.
