10G SFP+ 850 nm Limiting Transceiver, 10GE Compatible
NOTE: Effective Dec 2008, the 10 Gbps Compatible SFP+ transceiver (Model PLRXPL-VC-S43-23-N) replaces the 10 Gbps SFP+ Compatible Transceiver Models PLRXPL-VD-S43-21-N and PLRXPL-VC-S43-22-N) (PDF, .34 MB).
The lead-free and RoHS-compliant small form factor pluggable (SFP+) transceiver from Lumentum improves the performance for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10G) applications, and is ideal for high-speed campus and large data center applications. This transceiver features a highly reliable, 850 nm, oxide, vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) coupled to an LC optical connector. The transceiver is fully compatible with 10GBASE-SR, 10GBASE-SW and 10G Fibre Channel specifications at shorter link distances, with internal AC coupling on both transmit and receive data signals. The all-metal housing design provides low EMI emissions in demanding 10G applications and conforms to IPF specifi cations. An enhanced digital diagnostic feature set allows for real-time monitoring of transceiver performance and system stability, and the serial ID allows for customer and vendor system specific information to be stored in the transceiver. Transmit disable, loss-of-signal, and transmitter fault functions are also provided. The small size of the transceiver allows for high-density board designs that, in turn, enable greater aggregate bandwidth.
