TE Connectivity's CXP connector and cage assembly offers 12 channels of 10 Gbps data rates for 120Gbps of total bandwidth in one-piece press-fit assembly. TE's CXP system complies with InfiniBand CXP 12x QDR and IEEE 100 Gbps Ethernet standards and enables pluggable copper or optical cable options. The system has been engineered for applications in high-speed data environments with EMI gasketing at bezel opening and EMI springs for plug-to receptacle containment. It provides one-step placement to the host board and comes with multiple heat-sink, lightpipe and EMI/dust plug options. Enhanced EF, dual sourced footprint offers reduced cross-talk and improved electrical performance.
TE also offers a complement of fiber optic cable assemblies with CXP fiber paths to interconnect CXP transceivers to CXP, QSFP+ and SFP+ transceivers. All are available with OM2 and OM3 fiber as a standard offering, with OM4 being available upon request.
