Transceiver for Optical Wireless Communications
The Broadcom® AFBR-FS50B00 is a transceiver that communicates data over free space and thereby allows connector-less/cable-less communication in a variety of applications.
Full-duplex bidirectional communication, together with a small form factor, allows a compact system design. The device keeps full functionality over a 360° rotation around the optical axis, which reduces the complexity of alignment on the system level and allows the use in rotating systems.
The component is designed to operate over a wide temperature range and with a potential data rate up to 5 Gb/s and a variable distance from 20 mm up to 100 mm.
The AFBR-FS50B00, a Laser Class 1 product, is RoHS-compliant and is designed for SMT solderability standard processes.
