Molex intros Mini-LC duplex cabling for Avago's Mini-SFP transceivers

The companies say the cable assemblies enable high-density deployment of active devices.

LISLE, Ill. -- Molex (NASDAQ: MOLX) announced its new Mini-LC Duplex Cables, which are designed to mate with Avago Technologies' (NASDAQ: AVGO) Mini-SFP transceiver.

Molex says the assemblies were developed with a reduced ferrule pitch over standard LC duplex connectors to enable a higher density deployment of active devices per blade and a cleaner cable-management solution when mated with Avago Technologies' Mini-SFP transceiver.

Targeting data communications and networking applications, the Mini-LC Duplex cables come in standard lengths of 1, 2, 3, 5 and 10 meters with variations that include Mini-LC to Mini-LC cables as well as Mini-LC to standard LC duplex cables.

Molex also offers custom lengths and fiber optic breakout cables if transitions are needed from MPO based QSFP modules to Mini-SFP transceivers supported by Avago Technologies.

Additional product features include:

* Utilizes 50/125um OM3 fiber for longer reach and higher speeds optimized at 850nm or 1300nm.

* Complies with RoHS requirements meeting EU environmental requirements for electronic equipment and accessories.

* Utilizes industry standard LC connector / RJ-45 latching style mechanism with a press-to-release design for ease-of-use.

* Black color-coded latches differentiate the standard LC Duplex connector versus the new Mini-LC Duplex connector.

"Molex's new Mini-LC will enable our customers to offer higher port densities and improved cable management over standard SFP interfaces increasing available bandwidth per blade," said Eve Leal, program manager, Molex.
