Avago Technologies unveils what it calls the industry's smallest form factor for 10Gbit/s pluggable modules at the Super Computing 2010 conference.

The mini-SFP+ (mSFP+) pluggable modules tout 30 per cent greater port density over industry-standard SFP+ transceivers, while delivering the same data-transmission performance for next-generation 10Gbit/s Ethernet equipment designs and 8Gbit/s fibre channel for storage applications.

The mSFP+ transceivers are said to incorporate Avago 850nm Vertical-Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) and PIN detector technology and comply with the optical interface specification per IEEE 802.3ae 10GBASE-SR standards. The devices are designed for low power consumption with typical dissipation of 0.6W.

Avago has teamed with multiple cage and cable suppliers to offer a complete 10Gbit/s Ethernet mSFP+ solution. Avago is exhibiting a high-density DCX Backbone modular switch from Brocade featuring the mSFP+ technology, in addition to demonstrating other high-speed optical fibre solutions, at the Super Computing 2010 conference from November 15-19.

"Avago optical transceivers offer unparalleled reliability, with not a single VCSEL failure in the millions of 8- and 10Gbit/s modules we have shipped to date," said Tina Ohlhaver, marketing manager for fibre optic products at Avago.
