April 21, 2020
The Versatile Link + project is about to enter its production phase, ready for the Phase 2 HL-LHC detector upgrades. We present the status of the front-end part of the Versatile Link + project: the Versatile Link + Transceiver, which provides a low-mass, radiation tolerant, optical transmit- and receive module for tight integration in the upgrading HL-LHC detectors. We describe the development and thorough testing carried out with the transceiver prototypes and their sub-components and the design decisions that have led to the final production-ready prototype. The planned production schedule is also presented.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
