Avago Technologies' AFBR-54D7APZ mSFP optical transceiver supports high-speed Fibre Channel serial links over multimode optical fiber at signaling rates up to 8.5 GBd. Compliant with Small Form Pluggable (SFP) Multi Source Agreement (MSA) electrical specifications for duplex transceivers, ANSI Fibre Channel for FC-PI-4 and FC-PI-2 for gigabit applications. The part is electrically and mechanically interoperable with SFP compliant applications.
The AFBR-54D7APZ is a multi-rate 850nm mSFP which ensures compliance to 8.5/4.25/2.125 GBd Fibre Channel specifications without the need for Rate Select. The AFBR-54D7APZ will ignore both Rate Select pin and control bit inputs (ie. no connect inside the SFP). This simplifies Fibre Channel host auto-negotiation algorithms, layout and software
