TE Connectivity enables high-speed video processing in demanding environments with NanoRF 75 Ohm coax/optical hybrid modules

New modular solution supports emerging industry standards and higher-speed protocols for advanced video applications

HARRISBURG, Pa. – May 07, 2024 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has introduced its NanoRF 75 Ohm coax/optical hybrid modules. This solution is engineered to help meet the high-speed, high-density requirements of next-generation video capture and processing in aerospace, defense and marine applications.

The NanoRF 75 Ohm module features a 75-ohm matched impedance in both contact construction and interface, minimizing signal loss during cable transitions. This technology facilitates high-quality signaling and supports the high-speed protocols essential for rapid video processing. Additionally, the connectors feature spring-mounted backplane contacts, providing float to help ensure accurate contact alignment and reliable, low-loss signal transmission, even under extreme conditions. 

“We wanted to expand upon the success and reliability of our existing NanoRF 50 Ohm solution to meet the market needs for high-speed video applications,” said Kevin Pasquarette, product manager. “Consequentially, we developed the NanoRF 75 Ohm product line, which has been adopted in the VITA standards.”

The NanoRF 75 Ohm module offers a first-of-its-kind blend of high-speed coaxial and fiber-optic connections for video signals up to 18 GHz, all within a small form factor compatible with existing VPX architectures. Its compliance with standards including VITA 65.0, 65.1, 67.3 and the SOSA™ (Sensor Open Systems Architecture) Technical Standard simplifies implementation and facilitates system upgrades. 

Key Benefits:

•                 Enables high-speed video processing and data transmission.

•                 Minimizes signal loss through 75-ohm matched impedance contacts.

•                 Helps ensure reliable connectivity in harsh environments.

•                 Allows seamless integration of coax and fiber optics in a compact package.

•                 Compatible with prevailing industry standards for simplified implementation.
