Optical components used for testing the AMC13.

10Gb/s DAQ

5Gb/s DAQ

For the high-speed (SFP+) transceivers, we suggest HP AJ716A 8Gb Fibre Channel SFP+ transceiver. We bought a couple from serversupply.com ($85 each or so). These are 850nm MMF Duplex LC connector type.

160/400Mb/s TCDS

After LS1 CMS will replace TTC hardware with TDCS. This will use TTC protocol for downstream compatible with existing system, but new 400MB/s 8b10b protocol for upstream.

As of this writing we are still selecting a new SFP to use but here are some candidates:

Manufacturer Part No Price/Availability Speed Notes
JDSU JSH-12L1DD1 USD 38 / 4 weeks   Recommended by Jan Troska
Finisar FTLF1318P3BTL USD 65 / Stock Gigabit Ethernet up to 1.25Gb/s  
Finisar FTLF1321P1BTL USD 95 / Stock Up to 2.67Gb/s  

160Mb/s TTC

For the TTC receiver, we use an SFP 155-Mbps 1300nm transceiver. Suppliers:

  • LFP105 from blackbox.com ($70 each) – Discontinued as of June 2012
  • HFBR-57E0LZ from Avago (Digi-Key has them).

Cables are 62.5u multimode ST-LC type

We have shipped several AMC13 with the Black Box ST/LC cable (3m) P/N: EFN110-003M-STLC.

NOTE: these are all obsolete with the commissioning of the TCDS system
