4-Channel CX4 Xenpak Copper Transceiver
The Emcore ECX7700 Series Copper transceiver provides cost
effective and reliable bandwidth transport of up to 12.5 Gigabits over
distances of up to 15 meters. The x4 architecture, 4 full-duplex, 3.125
Gigabaud transmit and receive channels over a single parallel copper
cable that is transparent to the user. It not only offers the ability to scale
net bandwidth in 10 Gigabit increments, it also mates directly with the
industry standard MDI electrical socket.
The ECX-7700 Series Copper transceiver has built in media detect
circuitry that supports Emcore QTR3400 Media converter. The
combination extends the maximum link distance up to 300 meters over
a laser grade parallel optical fiber ribbon.
