8 mm pitch SMT connector and a press-fit cage designed to comply with the Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable (QSFP) Transceiver Specifications. The connector system is capable of data rates beyond 10 Gbps per channel (4 channels) and is intended for external connections (38-position connector). High speed serial interconnect applications include clusters, servers and storage devices.
The ExpressPort™QSFP+ E-series connector family is rated at 28 Gbps per channel (4x28), featuring a stamped and formed contact design providing improved mechanical durability. This connector features an integrated grounding structure and resonance dampening features for superior crosstalk performance. The contact design is optimized for a smooth impedance profile resulting in low losses.
