MU Backplane

As a member of the original MU connector product development team, Sanwa can now offer the widest variety of MU connectors and associated products in the industry. Sanwa MU Series connectors include simplex, duplex, and uniboot varieties, as well as adapters and backplane solutions for single, multimode, and APC applications. Because they’re small form factor (SFF), they offer the benefit of high-density packaging with high optical performance, using 1.25mm OD ceramic ferrules.


Sanwa’s Back Plane solution for the MU type connector consists of five components: an MU regular connector coupled from outside the package, an MUJ type connector coupled from inside the package, a sleeve holder providing precise alignment of both connectors, a back panel housing, and board package housing. Sanwa offers duplex and 8-port MU back plane solutions for both 2.4mm and 3.2mm board thicknesses.
