Amphenol’s CFP2 (surface mount receptacle connector) is considered to be a candidate of future generation multi hundred Gbps systems. CFP2 is comprised of 104 position, 0.6mm pitch host and pluggable connectors. It is rated for 28 Gbps per channel with resonance dampening for improved signal integrity. The plug connector on the mating interface improves accuracy and aids in achieving high speed performance. The CFP2 interconnect system includes insert molding assemblies for top side contacts and press-fit cage assemblies complying with IEEE and ITU-T applications.
