The UltraPortTM SFP+ interconnect system is comprised of a 20-position hot swappable I/O connector enclosed in a metal cage mounted to a host PCB. It supports 32Gbps applications with a backward compatibility for next generation Ethernet and Fibre Channel applications. Amphenol’s UltraPortTM SFP+ connector shares the same exceptional mating interface and EMI cage dimensions as the SFP+ form factor. The cages are built for use with several board thicknesses and assembly processes to accommodate server and switch applications with great cost savings. The connector accepts multiple transceivers per INF-8081 and combines, transmits, and receives functions in a low cost, compact and flexible format. We offer a wide variety of cage configurations, which have a two-piece construction with enhanced transceiver mating tabs available in press-fit or solder tail versions. Stacked versions (2XN) consist of a 2-row cage with integrated connectors. The entire assembly is press-fit pin compliant.
