QSFP+ (QSFP Plus) interconnect system – 40 Gb/s bandwidth (4x10) capability. ICC ‘s QSFP+ interconnect system increases 10G/s per channel port density and enables users to better utilize available linear board space 

The QSFP + (Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable) interconnect system consists of a 38 position connector, EMI cage and copper based cable assemblies that allows the user to increase linear PCB board port signal density well above that of the XFP, SFP or SFP+ I/O systems. This product offering has been designed to meet the emerging industry bandwidth needs of 40 Gb/s per port capability as defined by the IEEE 802.3ba specification as well as Infiniband QDR and FibreChannel. System functionality is defined by and meets industry standards SFF-8436 specifications and delivers 4 times the port bandwidth capability of SFP+ systems. This system is particularly well suited for high transactional systems that are typically deployed in data center, networking and high performance computing applications. 

ICC offers an SMT mounted 38 position edge card connector, a PCB mounted EMI metal cage, a diecast heat sink and mounting clip and copper based passive and actively equalized cable assemblies offering in the maximum cable lengths allowed per the performance specifications noted above.
