Long reach optical transceivers offer extended temperature support

Brussels, Belgium—Avago Technologies has designed its latest 10 Gbit/s Ethernet SFP+ optical transceiver based on its 1310 nm DFB laser and PIN detector technology.

Designated AFCT-701SDZ/AFCT-701ASDZ, these 10 Gbit/s SFP+ LR (long reach) optical transceivers offer extended temperature support and bring new levels of high speed and high port density to next-generation networking equipment.

With digital monitoring interface (DMI), Avago's 10G SFP+ transceivers operate over single-mode fiber at distances up to 10 km in compliance with the optical interface specifications per IEEE 802.3ae 10GBASE-LR. With support for RoHS 6 and China RoHS, the ACFT-701SDZ operates in temperatures, ranging from 0° to 70°C and features a typical power dissipation of less than 1W.

An extended temperature version, the AFCT-701ASDZ, supports 0° to 85°C. Avago's optical transceiver follows the SFF-8431 specification for enhanced 10 Gbit/s SFP+ as well as the SFF-8472 specification for DMI in optical transceivers.

The emerging SFP+ form factor for optical transceivers enables network equipment manufacturers to build products with greater port density to effectively support the growing demand for data-intensive applications.

Pricing: Begins at $380/$430 in volumes.
