Samtec FireFly Power/Control Connector Adopted by Consortium for On Board Optics

New Albany, IN: Samtec announces the Consortium for On Board Optics (COBO) has adopted a two-piece surface mount connector system based on Samtec’s FireFly™ Micro Flyover System™ for the next generation of standardized on-board optical modules. As part of the new miniature footprint, the Power/Control connector from Samtec reduces the size of on-board optical modules while increasing port density in data center and HPC applications.

Additionally, the Samtec connector was selected as the proposal for the Power/Control connector for all low speed signals on x8 and x16 lane full-duplex options of the COBO modules. The built-in positive latching capabilities of the new connector enhance ruggedness in on-board optical modules.
