Product Announcement from Avago Technologies
• Increase system port density 30% beyond standard SFP+ with existing cabling
• Re-use SFP+ PCB electrical connector
• Maintain equivalent high electro-optical, low speed sense/control, and EMI performance
• Leverage manufacturing experience and quality of Avago SFP+ solutions
The Avago AFBR-703SNZ transceiver has a mini-SFP+ (mSFP) form factor that is smaller than the standard SFP+ form factor defined by the SFF 8432 mechanical specs. This product is part of a family of SFP+ products, but can be used for even higher density 10Gb Ethernet application than what the SFP+ form factor can serve today. Both the mSFP and the SFP+ form factors share the same management interface specs and optical specs. Both the mSFP SR transceiver and the SFP+ SR transceiver utilize Avago's 850nm VCSEL and PIN detector technology to provide an IEEE 10GbE design compliant with the 10GBASE-SR standard.
