Product Description

AFL’s CARDConnect V-groove assemblies provide on-card integration into next
generation photonics devices. The V-groove assemblies are sold separately from module housing to allow customizable options to meet application requirements including fiber/ cable type, channel count, polish angle,and length of assembly.
AFL incorporates a flat lid in the design to facilitate the accurate alignment of the fibers
into the V-grooves by creating a three-point contact area thus providing excellent fiber
core position accuracy. Custom fiber assembly lengths and a variety of opposite end
connector types facilitate AFL’s unique ability to meet application requirements. The
CARDConnect V-groove assemblies are engineered to provide high coupling efficiency
and low insertion losses.
