Designed as a miniature detachable connector the PRIZM® LightTurn® Connector provides passive alignment and novel retention features allowing multiple re-matings\perpendicular to the printed circuit board.
This 12-fiber connector is made up of a multi-fiber floating ferrule with a photonic TIR lens enclosed in a protective housing. The perpendicular mating capability saves vast amounts of space on already densely packed circuit boards.
