TE Connectivity Hi-SI stacked QSFP+ connector & cage assemblies, in distribution

July 22, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Mouser Electronics has TE Connectivity’s stacked QSFP+ connector and cage assemblies that claim signal integrity that exceeds competitive solutions by up to 8 dB (at 5 GHz); these Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable (QSFP+) stacked cage assemblies provide four channels of data in one pluggable interface. Each channel can transfer data at up to 10 Gbps, meeting QSFP+ requirements.

The TE Connectivity stacked QSFP+ connector and cage assemblies include an enhanced EMI-resistant gasket and cage, feature increased panel port density, and support stacked configurations. These QSFP+ connectors are a high-speed and cost-effective alternative to fibre optics in short reach 10 Gigabit and 40G Ethernet and InfiniBand applications.

The stacked configurations on these I/O connectors increase panel port density, and the enhanced elastomeric gasket and cage design provide excellent EMI suppression with up to a 10 dB advantage from 2 to 10 GHz over competing solutions. These QSFP+ connectors support the following standard data application protocols: 10 Gigabit and 40G Ethernet; InfiniBand SDR (2.5 Gbps), DDR (5 Gbps) and QDR (10 Gbps); and Serial attached SCSI (SAS).

TE Connectivity’s stacked QSFP+ connectors and cage assemblies are available through Mouser Electronics in 2- or 4-port configurations with a Press Fit termination style and gold contact plating. All devices offer an industry standard footprint and interface design. These QSFP+ connectors are suited for a variety of telecommunications and computing applications, including servers, hubs, switches, routers, storage devices and network interface cards (NICs).
