Pluggable Optical Module TIM

Increasing demands for 200GB, 400GB, and 800GB ethernet speeds will require higher optical module power than cannot be cooled with a heatsink alone.   Laird’s OptiTIMTM product is designed to overcome the challenges of cooling optical transceiver modules in Telecom, Data Centers and Enterprise Systems markets.   OptiTIM is a durable thermal interface material that can withstand the insertion and removal requirements of the pluggable module while maintaining the thermal performance.   OptiTIM can improve the heat transfer between the optical module and heat sink an average of 40C based on the overall system design (module power, heat sink size, fan speed, etc)

Features and Benefits

·        Lowers opticalmodules operating temperature

·        Durability, notearing or breaking during insertion and removal

·        Excellentadhesion properties

·        Excellent surfacewetting for low contact resistance
