Customizable thermoelectric assemblies serve optical communications market

LAIRD ATC (Active Transceiver Cooler) Series of customizable thermoelectric assemblies (TEAs) provide thermal management in small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceivers, serving the optical communications market. Each unit contains a temperature sensitive laser diode and the ability to transmit data at higher speeds depends on keeping the temperature typically below 70°C. Product removes heat from the optical module to maintain peak performance and minimize loss in packets of information. Products have been optimized to remove heat from three types of transceivers: SFP, XFP and QSFP.
