SFP28 PORT TESTING SOLUTION

Amphenol's SFP28 MSA compliant Loopback Modules are part of Amphenol's comprehensive copper cable and connector product family. Offered as passive electrical, all versions of this connector come without EMI spring fingers, reducing the insertion and extraction force.

Features & Benefits
FEATURES BENEFITS
  • SFF-8472 / SFF-8432 and QSFP+ MSA compliant module
  • Supports all industry standard ports
  • The module is composed of a high-frequency Printed Circuit Board (PCB) designed with controlled impedance traces to loop the high speed lane RX to TX lane
  • Low cost tool to allow individual port testing without using a cable assembly which tests 2 ports and is harder to handle
  • Available with and without attenuation
  • Effectively tests ports with loss enabled to replicate the loss of a cable assembly
  • EEPROM per MSA; customization is available
  • Enables system communication over I2C bus
  • Compatible with existing 28G SFP connector ports
  • Backward compatible with 10G SFP+
  • Custom mechanical solutions without EMI springs fingers
  • Provides easier engagement/disengagement from the test ports
  • Available as a push to release design to ease releasing the loopback from the port
  • Push to release makes changing ports quicker and the loopback has a cast in feature to make port removal easier
  • RoHS compliant
  • Meets environmental, health and safety requirements
