QSFP+ Interconnect Solutions

The QSFP+ connector, cage and cable assemblies (copper and optical) and loopbacks are part of a highly-integrated system that combines effective use of space, power and port density for high-density applications. Industry-leading Active Optical Cables (AOCs) from Molex achieve 40 Gbps data rates over long reaches up to 4km.

Molex’s Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable Plus (QSFP+) solution is designed for high-density applications. The original QSFP MSA has been superseded by the SFF-8436 specification. Molex products comply with those defined in SFF-8436.

Molex’s QSFP+ cable assemblies are designed to accommodate stacked and ganged connector configurations in extremely high-density requirements. They will support 10G Ethernet, Fibre Channel, InfiniBand, SAS and SONET/SDH standards with different data rate options.

Active Optical Cable (AOCs) extremely low power consumption of only 0.78W per cable end improves overall data center power consumption and thermal efficiency. AOCs reduced cable bulk compared to larger diameter copper cabling enable deployment of additional ports for increased number of AOCs per system, resulting in more connectivity options and total system cost savings. Four bi-directional optical data links per end each operate at data rates from 1.0 to 10.3125 Gbps and are compatible with multiple protocols including InfiniBand single data rates (SDR), dual data rates (DDR) and quad data rates (QDR), Ethernet systems (10 and 40 Gbps), Fibre Channel (8 and 10 Gbps), SAS (6 Gbps).

The optical QSFP+ MTP pluggable cable assemblies and loopbacks meet the QSFP+ interface specification. QSFP+ cable assemblies provide improved fiber management in the chassis. Loopbacks feature a compact housing compatible with module spacing and loop optical transmit ports to receive ports for testing, burn-in and field troubleshooting.
