Title
(EN) A CONNECTOR DEVICE FOR CONNECTING AT LEAST ONE OPTICAL FIBER END PIECE TO AN ELECTRIC TERMINAL
(FR) DISPOSITIF CONNECTEUR POUR CONNECTER AU MOINS UNE PIÈCE D'EXTRÉMITÉ DE FIBRE OPTIQUE À UNE BORNE DE CONNEXION ÉLECTRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
The application provides a connector device for connecting at least one optical fiber endpiece to an electric terminal. The connector device comprises a printed circuit board and an electric connector plug connectable to an electric terminal. A fiber end piece holder is mounted or mountable in an orientation enabling light propagation parallel to the printed circuit board, whereas an optoelectronic chip comprising optoelectronic active elements enables emission and/or detection of light substantially normal to the printed circuit board. A layered optical stack is provided on the printed circuit board, which layered optical stack comprises a reflection surface for changing the propagation direction between parallel and normal to the printed circuit board.

La présente invention concerne un dispositif connecteur pour connecter au moins une pièce d'extrémité de fibre optique à une borne de connexion électrique. Le dispositif connecteur comprend une carte de circuit imprimé et une fiche de connecteur électrique apte à être connectée à une borne de connexion électrique. Un support de pièce d'extrémité de fibre est monté ou est apte à être monté dans une orientation permettant une propagation de la lumière parallèlement à la carte de circuit imprimé, tandis qu'une puce optoélectronique comprenant des éléments actifs optoélectroniques permet l'émission et/ou la détection de la lumière sensiblement perpendiculaire à la carte de circuit imprimé. Un empilement optique stratifié est disposé sur la carte de circuit imprimé, lequel empilement optique stratifié comprend une surface de réflexion pour changer la direction de propagation entre les directions parallèle et perpendiculaire à la carte de circuit imprimé.
