Other Ruggedized Optoelectronic / Photonic Solutions

Optoelectronics (also referred to as photonics) are various forms of optical transceivers / receiver modules, copper-to-fiber media converters, "active" optical connectors and cables and other devices used to convert digital electrical signals in electronic equipment into optical signals for high-bandwidth, long-distance transmission. In free-space, aerospace and other demanding environments, optoelectronics are ruggedized for resistance to radiation, temperature extremes, vibration and shock.
