The CFP compliant connector is a new ultra high speed pluggable I/O interface supporting 40 and 100 Gb/s ethernet applications. The integrated system provides the mechanical, EMI and thermal performance necessary to meet the demanding requirements of the CFP Multi Source Agreement (MSA) Optical Transceivers and OEM host line cards.
Module Connector Plug
10x solution using high speed 148 position connector, supporting 10Gb/s per channel.
Plug connector straddle mounts to the Optical Transceiver module printed circuit board for conventional processing.
Receptacle connector is surface mount (SMT) processed to the host board for conventional processing.
Design supports belly-to-belly port positioning (mounted on both sides of host board) for high density.
Accepts all CFP MSA compliant optical transceivers.
Provides EMI shielding at the host connector interface and at the bezel opening via integrated EMI gasketing.
