Tyco Brings LIGHTRAYs To Fujikura.

Tyco Electronics Corporation and Fujikura, Ltd. recently completed a licensing agreement for the production of AMP LIGHTRAY MPX interconnection system products. Both companies will multi-source this fiber optic backplane interconnection product line. Utilized in the telecommunications and networking markets, it has above three million lines sold worldwide. The system products are turning into the de facto standard for system level applications. It streamlines dense fiber-to-fiber blindmate system interconnection and accommodates blindmate backplane applications and other dense fiber-to-fiber interconnect applications. Enlisting stand-alone interconnection, it employs bulkhead porting and contains products and accessories in a variety of configurations. Based on the MT ferrule technology, the products feature miniature array connectors. Having up to 12 fibers on 250 micron centers, it applies a glass-filled polymer ferrule and at the center of the system is the new product's array connector.

"This agreement strengthens the LIGHTRAY MPX interconnection system as a solution for the demand for system-level packaging and the source requirements of the communications marketplace," said Rodd Ruland, director of marketing and business development for the Fiber Optic Division at Tyco Electronics.

The LIGHTRAY MPX array connector is hatched in accordance with Bellcore GR-1435-CORE generic requirements for connectors. A line of adapters, cleaning tools, dust covers, and test kits are available to round out the product line.
