Mini-SFP+ optical transceivers increase port density
The mini-SFP+ (mSFP) AFBR-54D7APZ transceiver addresses 8-Gbps Fibre Channel for storage applications and the AFBR-703SNZ transceiver targets next-generation 10-Gbps Ethernet equipment designs.
Both pluggable modules increase port density by 30 percent over industry-standard SFP+ transceivers, while delivering the same data-transmission performance. The mSFP transceivers incorporate Avago 850-nm Vertical-Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) and PIN detector technology, which insures the AFBR-54D7APZ module is compliant with 8.5/4.25/2.125 GBd Fibre Channel specifications and the AFBR-703SNZ module complies with IEEE 802.3ae 10GBASE-SR standards.
The devices use the SFP+ electrical connector and I2C interface, and are compliant with the Small Form Pluggable (SFP) Multi Source Agreement (MSA) electrical specifications for duplex transceivers. The mSFP modules are designed for low power consumption with typical dissipation of 0.6 W.
