The AFBR-1013 transmitter and AFBR-2013 receiver are housed in a 4-pin transfer-molded low-cost package that can be assembled into a MOST (Media Oriented System Transport) technology compliant plastic fiber optic connector receptacle. Two package options are available, one with short leads AFBR-1013S/-2013S and one with long leads AFBR-1013L/-2013L.


AFBR-1013 Transmitter and AFBR-2013 Receiver are packaged in 500mm long anti-static coated tubes (see Figure 2 and 3), with moisture-proof agent and indicator acc. Put together in a moisture barrier bag (MBB). JEDEC J-STD-33B for protecting the interior of equipment from ambient humidity. Labels as shown in Figure 1 indicate moisture sensitivity.

Service life and maximum storage time (shelf life)

Moisture sensitivity is classified as MSL2a according to JEDEC J-STD-020D. Devices can be stored in an unopened moisture barrier bag at temperatures between 5°C and 50°C and relative humidity (RH) not exceeding 90% for up to 12 months.

Unpackaged devices can be stored in a production environment for up to 4 weeks if the temperature does not exceed 30°C and the relative humidity (RH) does not exceed 60%. Higher temperatures in a production environment can shorten floor life, as shown in Figure 2.

Floor life of MSL2a


When the device is removed from the moisture barrier bag and inserted into the MOST system for a maximum of 4 weeks, the moisture content in the mold material should be low enough to ensure minimal mechanical stress during soldering.

As mentioned in the previous paragraph, it is recommended to bake the modules prior to soldering if the device will be left on the production site for more than four weeks.

Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Protection

ESD events can damage or degrade device performance. The ESD standard DIN 61340-5-1 shall be followed. The following ESD precautions should be taken. Any minor ESD prevention program may not be suitable for preventing ESD damage.

  • Anti-static floor
  • Anti-static benches, anti-static workbenches, and anti-static storage facilities (such as trolleys and trolleys)
  • Anti-static wrist strap/wrist strap connector
  • Anti-static footwear and clothing (cotton or special release material)
  • Anti-static gloves or finger cots
  • Anti-static chair
  • Anti-static tools (such as pliers)
  • ESD protection on device parts (device parts that may be in direct contact with the device leads, should be made of dissipative materials as far as possible. If dissipative materials cannot be used for technical reasons, a naturally non-conductive surface layer must be used that is thin enough (breakdown Metal) voltage <10 v). Conductive machine parts that may come into direct contact with the equipment leads must be grounded without series resistance and the electric field in the vicinity of the equipment must not exceed 104=”” v=””>10>
  • Anti-static packaging materials

shortening and lead bending

The leads of the device are bent once at a time, the maximum bending angle is 90°, and the distance from the edge of the cut lead between the leads is not less than 1 mm. The minimum bending radius is 0.25mm. When a bending force is applied to the wire, a counter force must be applied to ensure that no force is applied to the package. See Figure 6 for an overview.
