Amphenol Commercial SFP Connectors

Amphenol Commercial SFP Connectors support applications for up to 6Gb/s per channel. The connectors accept multiple transceivers per INF-8074i and combine, transmit, and receive functions in a cost-effective, compact format. The assemblies are built to maximize valuable space on the PCB. The cages feature two-piece construction with enhanced transceiver mating tabs offered in a press-fit or solder-tail version. Light pipes are designed to show a "link" or "no link" status using LEDs attached to the PCB. Amphenol Commercial SFP Connectors are ideal for communications and data applications.
