Molex updates zSFP+ interconnect system to support 56G channels

Molex says its zSFP+ Interconnect System now supports channels with individual lane data rates up to 56Gb/s PAM-4, providing enhanced signal integrity for next-generation Ethernet and Fibre Channel applications.

The cages and cable assemblies that make up the zSFP+ Interconnect System come in a stacked 2xN configuration to meet the needs of OEMs requiring high-density interconnects. The product range includes EMI-protected ganged cages, which are available in multiple port sizes from 2x1 through 2x12.

Molex shows high-density optical EMI shielding adapters

When optics moves onto the line card, systems developers need to find ways to manage electromagnetic interference (EMI) through the front panel. That’s where Molex’s high-density optical EMI shielding adapters come in. The company displayed its new line of multi-port EMI adapters with internal laser protection shutters on its booth, 3218, at OFC 2017, on 21–23 March in Los Angeles.

FlexiBend MPO/MTP flexible-boot cable assemblies

Molex has introduced FlexiBend MPO/MTP flexible-boot cable assemblies, designed to optimise cable routing and support low profile installations where cabinet doors or front panels might interfere with traditional straight style bend limiting boots. These optical cables can be used in datacom, telecommunications, medical, and industrial equipment cabinets and rack-to-rack applications, the company says. 

The assemblies feature flexible bend limiting boots which allow cable exits in varying positions from straight to a 90-degree angle.
