Molex Announces QSFP High-Performance Products
The new Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable (QSFP) product offering includes the SMT host connector, an EMI shielding cage assembly, passive and active cable assemblies and supports speed to 10 Gbps per lane. Currently the world's most compact, four-high speed channel, Z-axis pluggable interface, this new offering is a part of a highly-integrated system that is compatible with the QSFP Multi Source Agreement (MSA). It integrates four 10G high speed channels into a single pluggable interconnect system, which results in three times the port density of SFP and lower cost per channel. As an optical solution at a lower cost, the copper QSFP cable assembly delivers the same performance with an optional serial management interface.
