TE Connectivity CXP Pluggable I/O Connectors
TE Connectivity CXP connector and cage assembly offers 12 channels of 12.5 Gbps data rates for 150 Gbps of total bandwidth in one-piece press-fit assembly which reduces PCB processing and cost. The TE CXP system complies with InfiniBand CXP 12x QDR and IEEE 100 Gbps Ethernet standards and enables pluggable copper or optical cable options. The Enhanced Footprint (EF) offers reduced cross-talk and improved electrical performance. Applications for TE's CXP system include controller cards and servers, network switches, routers, storage devices, Direct Attached Storage (DAS), Storage Attached Networks (SAN), and Network Attached Storage (NAS).
