MDX-19 Series of optical LED transceivers are for ATM and FDDI data-communication networks and mezzanine card applications. These high-performance transceivers integrate duplex data links that provide bi-directional communication over multimode optical fiber. The 1,300-nm LED is suitable for use in network environments such as ATM OC-3 up to 155 Mbits/sec and FDDI at 125 Mbaud. Compatible with either 50 or 62.5 micron multimode fiber-optic cable, the transceivers are for backbone applications.
