TE Connectivity SFP+ I/O Interconnects
TE Connectivity's SFP+ product family extends the use of the Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) interconnect up to 10Gb/s. This system meets the performance requirements of SFF (Small Form-Factor) specification SFF-8431 and supports 8G Fiber Channel and 10G Ethernet applications. The SFP+ product family includes cages, connectors, and copper cable assemblies.
16G SFP+ products were developed to further extend the SFP form factor for use in 16G Fibre Channel applications and provide additional margin in electrical performance at 10Gb/s SFP+ applications.
The ganged (single-row) SFP+ cages are offered in two designs that address EMI containment - with EMI springs and with elastomeric gaskets. Single port cages are offered with EMI springs only. The cages come in single port, 1x2, 1x4, and 1x6 port configurations. Lightpipes are also an option for all SFP+ cage styles.
The 20 position SMT connectors for single-row applications include an enhanced contact design for lower loss at the higher data rates. The SFP+ and 16G SFP+ connectors maintain compliance with the original SFP MSA, providing a drop-in replacement. However, an alternate PCB layout can be used to reduce impedance discontinuity at the host board termination area.
