An intrafacility fiber cable (IFC) assembly system from Hirose supports
bidirectional optical transmission of 6.25 Gbits/s and unidirectional
transmission up to 12.5 Gbits/s (6.25 Gbits/s x 2 channels). The high-speed
BF4-IFC Series cable assembly integrates the BF4M active optical connector into
a rugged circular shell with a push-pull design for quick mating/unmating

The high-speed BF4-IFC Series cable assembly system features a
built-in E/O converter on the Tx (transmit) end and an O/E converter on the Rx
(receiver) end. Simplifying design and installation, the BF4-IFC connector and
cable assembly provides both high-speed optical data transmission and power
delivery through a single hybrid optical fiber and electrical cable system,
said Hirose.

The BF4-IFC active optical connector and cable assembly system
enables high-speed data transmission at cable lengths of more than 50 m. The
cable system delivers power up to 3.3 V. An innovative internal wiring system offers
all the benefits of fiber-optic signaling including high signal quality, low
power consumption (less than 250 mW), and excellent EMI noise prevention, said

BF4-IFC cable is suited for any application that requires long reach, high
speed, and limited wiring space including broadcasting equipment, data centers,
medical equipment, FA cameras, and security cameras. For additional
