Endicott, N.Y. — Amphenol Cables on Demand (www.CablesOnDemand.com), an online subsidiary of interconnect-industry leader, Amphenol Corporation, proudly announces the launch of its new 10-Gigabit (10GBASE-SR) SFP+ Multimode Optical Transceiver Modules. This precision-engineered 10GBASE-SR SFP+ Optical Module is available exclusively from Amphenol Cables on Demand for as low as $76.95 per module.
Optical Transceiver Modules for SFP+ applications are the logical evolution to Amphenol’s popular copper line-up of Active and Passive SFP+ Direct Attach Cable Assemblies, according to Nick Blas, Cables on Demand Product Manager. “With millions of Amphenol brand Passive Copper Cables deployed worldwide for SFP+ applications, there’s no doubt that copper dominates the majority of the SFP+ interconnect market today.” Blas notes that despite SFP+ copper’s popularity, some design limitations, such as maximum link distance and cable management, are best remedied by switching to an optical SFP+ interconnect solution.
Amphenol Cables on Demand addressed all of these aforementioned design limitations by releasing its new 10GBASE-SR SFP+ Optical Modules. While nearly identical to copper SFP+ visually, the SFP+ optical module’s advanced integrated circuitry automatically converts the SFP+ port’s default electrical interface to optical, amplifying the resulting optical signal with an efficient VCSEL laser driver and terminated to an integrated duplex LC connector on the rear of the module.
In order to ensure compatibility with your SFP+ switch or host bus adapter (HBA), Amphenol SFP+ Optical Transceiver Modules are subjected to intensive OEM-specific compliance testing so that they may be used as compatible drop-in replacements for their OEM SFP+ optical module counterparts.
