40-Gbps QSFP+ optical transceiver modules

By eeNews Europe

The QSFP+ optical transceivers can be used in switches, routers, data centres and other Ethernet applications where they provide more than 60 percent increase in faceplate PCB density and simplify heat management through reduced power consumption (power dissipation of 0.8W) of more than 50 percent compared to the use of four individual SFP+ modules.

Offering a digital diagnostic monitoring interface, the new transceivers allow customers to easily manage and monitor key module parameters of a system through alarm and warning flags for module performance.  QSFP+ MSA- and SFF-8436-compatible, the transceivers are electrically hot-pluggable allowing for port population on demand and in the field. The latch mechanism eases insertion into board-mounted cages and optical connectivity is enabled via industry standard MPO/MTP-terminated fibre ribbon.
