Molex Inc. recently introduced 30-circuit XFP host connectors for the reliable connection of storage equipment. Ideal for connecting switches, routers, and other storage equipment, these interconnects are used with 10-Gbit XFP Small Form Factor Pluggable modules and are referenced in the XFP Standard.
These right-angle SMT connectors feature a 0.8mm pitch, 30-position design. Both the XFP modules and host system are hot-pluggable.
The XFP host connector adds to Molex's growing family of 10-Gbit solutions that includes the 70-circuit XPAK/XENPAK connector.
Pricing for the 30-circuit XFP connector depends on quantity. For example, when purchased in quantities of 10,000, the connectors would cost approximately $3.60 each. Typical lead time is three to four weeks.
