The corrosion responses of a fiber-optic transceiver’s housing with zinc alloy die casting material are investigated in this study. Emphasis is placed on the determination of the weight change and corrosion rate of the housing when it is subjected to a 85% relative humidity and 85°C temperature (85%RH/85°C) test condition. Also, the average light optical power, receiver sensitivity, extinction ratio, and mask margin of transceiver modules subjected to 85%RH/85°C and 3.47V at 500, 1000, 1500, and 1600 h are provided. Furthermore, metallography is performed on the surfaces and cross sections of the housing. Finally, measurements are made of the thickness of the oxide layer on the surfaces of the fiber-optic transceiver housing.
