Tyco Electronics’ QSFP+ connector delivers optical performance for 40Gb/s InfiniBand, Ethernet applications

July 21, 2010
JULY 21, 2010 -- Tyco Electronics has released an enhanced QSFP+ surface-mount connector, designed for 40Gb/s InfiniBand and Ethernet (4x10Gb/s) standards applications. The 38-position connector meets the SFF-8436 industry standard -- including the interface and host board layout. The new product will drop into existing QSFP and QSFP+ applications and mate with compliant cable assemblies and optical transceivers.

JULY 21, 2010 -- Tyco Electronics has released an enhanced QSFP+ surface-mount connector, designed for 40Gb/s InfiniBand and Ethernet (4x10Gb/s) standards applications. The 38-position connector meets the SFF-8436 industry standard -- including the interface and host board layout. The new product will drop into existing QSFP and QSFP+ applications and mate with compliant cable assemblies and optical transceivers.

The internal contact and housing structure of the connector has been upgraded to optimize signal integrity in both upper and lower rows, says a representative. Test results validate that the new connector improves performance in insertion loss, return loss, and crosstalk. Electrical models are available upon request.

Samples (part number 2110819-1) of the new connector are currently available and tooled for mass production. The product is tape-and-reel packaged for surface-mount processing.
