Just released from Bel is a two-member (S558-5999-Z3 and S558-5999-Z4) family of surface mount magnetic transformer modules conforming to IEEE 802.3u standards. Boasting an extended operating temperature range of -40° to +85° C, these newest devices from Bel are the first quad modules in the company's growing line of LAN magnetics for industrial Ethernet. The components are further designed to interface with all major IC manufacturers' transceiver ICs, and to support operation over unshielded twisted pair cabling.

Designed for central office (CO) equipment and customer premise equipment (CPE), the transformers are widely specified for use in multi-port applications in environments where extreme temperatures often jeopardize reliability of communication networks. They are ideal for maximizing PC board layouts and providing optimal per port costs in stackable and modular 10/100 Base-TX Ethernet switches, hubs and routers.

These new transformers' low profile, small footprint, 40-pin packages withstand 225° C IR reflow soldering, and are compatible with standard pick-and-place machines.
