Production of the Versatile transceiver and twin transmitter modules for use in the readout and control systems of upgrading LHC detector systems is starting. We review the VTRx and VTTx flavours and their customer base as well as commercial actions being taken to procure parts and assemblies. The detailed production plan for delivering known good parts along with the full quality assurance...

New fiber optic transceivers, opto-boards, were designed and produced to replace the first generation opto-boards installed on the ATLAS pixel detector and for the new pixel layer. Each opto-board contains one 12-channel PIN array and two 12-channel VCSEL arrays along with associated receiver/driver ASICs. The new opto-board design benefits from the first generation production and operational...

A compact radiation-tolerant Array Optical transmitter module (ATx) integrating micro optics, a VCSEL array and a custom driver is demonstrated. ATx uses an edge warp substrate for the electrical interface and micro-lens array for the optical interface. A simple, high-accuracy and reliable active alignment method for micro-lens assembly is introduced. The coupling insertion loss is less than...
