The eQSFP interconnect system is comprised of a 38 position 0.8 mm pitch SMT connector, and a press-fit cage. With four channels of data in one pluggable, the system interface is capable of transferring data up to 28 Gbps / Channel, and replacing up to 4 standard SFP+ receptacles. These features result in greater port density and overall cost savings over traditional SFP+ products. Supporting standards include, Gigabit Ethernet, InfiniBand, and SONET/SDH with different data rate options. eQSFP includes cages in single and ganged configurations with multiple heat sink options supporting various thermal requirements and port status with light pipes options.
