This type of connector is engineered to accelerate data, power, and signal transmission between separate devices. Designed for speed, density, and flexibility as well as efficiency and standardization, our broad portfolio of pluggable input/output (I/O) connectors provide you with a reliable solution for improving thermal performance of critical systems and signal integrity in communications applications.
Pluggable Input/Output Interconnects
In data centers and metro-area networks, our CFP connectors support 40G and 100G Ethernet CFP optical transceivers and the integration of host PCB to host bezel. In servers and routers, our small form-factor pluggable (SFP) I/O interconnects improve EMI or thermal performance, by dissipating heat and reducing system temperature, while requiring less power to operate the overall system. In network interfaces and wireless base stations, our quad small form factor pluggable (QSFP) connectors add four channels in one interface, with data rates up to 28 Gbps per lane. In storage solutions, Mini SAS products are providing a dense, internal or external solution that meets industry SAS standards. With TE's pluggable I/O connectors, you gain the flexibility to deliver superior designs with reliable, high-density signal integrity at higher data rates.
