Molex to Showcase Next-Generation High-Speed Technology at the Ethernet Technology Summit
Molex Demonstrates High-Speed Differential Signal Transmission at Ethernet Technology Summit
Visit Molex (Booth #106) for demonstration of high-speed interconnect solutions delivering excellent thermal performance, EMI protection, and industry’s lowest power consumption.
Molex Incorporated, the leading global supplier of interconnect solutions, will showcase next-generation high-speed technology at the Ethernet Technology Summit being held February 23rd and 24th in the Santa Clara Marriott, Santa Clara, CA. A premier Silicon Valley event, the Ethernet Technology Summit attracts and serves global industry leaders focused on the latest in Ethernet technology advances and product innovation.
Conference attendees are welcome at Molex Booth #106 to speak with Joe Dambach, global new product development manager about the latest advances in high-speed interconnect solutions. Featured products include:
z-Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable Plus (zQSFP+)
Molex will demonstrate a live 25 Gbps differential transmission system incorporating the new zQSFP+ SMT connector and utilizing a National Semiconductor transceiver and 25 Gbps Bert Scope to present transmission performance via eye pattern for a 3-meter passive cable. Designed for high-density applications found in telecommunications, data networking, test and measurement, and medical diagnostic equipment, the zQSFP+ system supports next-generation 100 Gbps Ethernet and 100 Gbps Infiniband* Enhanced Data Rate applications. The Molex Active Optical zQSFP+ Cable (AOC) transmits 28 Gbps data rates up to 4Km with excellent thermal cooling, signal integrity, electro-magnetic interference protection, and the lowest known optical power consumption in the industry.
iPass+™ High-Speed Channel (HSC) CXP
A first-to-market technology, the iPass copper and optical system offers connectors and cables that achieve rates of up to 120 Gbps of pluggable data over 12 lanes in one assembly. This dual paddle-card system was adopted as the InfiniBand* CXP 12x QDR standard and by IEEE 802.3ba as the 100G Ethernet standard, providing 10 lanes of 10 Gbps data rates.
ZXP™ Modular I/O Interconnect System
The small form pluggable ZXP interface supports data transmission at speeds beyond SFP+, up to and beyond 17 Gbps, for development of next generation applications, particularly 16 Gbps Fibre Channel. The technology also lends itself to very high speed four lane interconnects to support emerging protocols such as 100 Gbps Ethernet.
White Paper & Panel Presentations
- Joe Dambach will present a paper entitled, “Connectors, CXP EF and zQSFP+” at the high-speed (25 Gbps) signaling session from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Tues, Feb 23rd. The workshop highlights technological advances and the respective roles that design engineers, package designers and system architects play in meeting industry challenges to successfully bring high-speed signaling products and applications to market.
- Additionally, Joe is serving as a panelist at the conference plenary session titled “Reinventing Ethernet: Ethernet for Next-Generation Applications” scheduled on Wed, Feb 23rd between 4:30-5:30 p.m. Industry panelists will discuss what it will take to make ubiquitous Ethernet a reality.
- Jay Neer, strategic product manager, Molex will present a paper entitled “10G/40G/100G Connector and Cable Status/Overview” at the tutorial T2A: 40/100 GbE: What’s Happening? Offered 2:00-4:30 p.m. on Wed, Feb 23rd, the tutorial examines the latest in timing, monitoring, interfaces, cabling, and connector technologies. Jay and peer experts will summarize the state of industry standards and how new 40 and 100 Gbps interface products can meet growing demand for bandwidth in compatible, technically feasible and cost-effective ways.
