Molex Showcases New EMI Cages at SC13

Nov. 19 — Molex Incorporated will showcase its new series of EMI cages at the 25thannual Supercomputing 2013 (SC13) international conference, November 18-21, Colorado Convention Center, Denver, CO in Molex booth 1141. A key component of the Molex zQSFP+ TM Interconnect Solution, the cages are assembled with zQSFP+ SMT connectors to create the interconnect solution and are offered in 1-by-4 ganged and 1-by-6 ganged.

The EMI cages feature an advanced heat-sink system that provides a high level of heat dissipation at next-generation system-power levels, as well as a die-cast frame design with reduced holes and openings that offers optimal EMI suppression and shielding effectiveness. The cages also have a screw-down feature to the PCB for maximum board retention for both single-side and belly-to-belly applications.

The EMI cages have the same mechanical mating size as QSFP+ EMI cages, which provide backward compatibility with QSFP+ and QSFP+ modules and cage assemblies for legacy system connections.

“Pervasive bandwidth requirements, due to the tremendous growth in wireless devices, are the catalyst for large-scale (100 Gbps) system designs in server farms,” said Alan Johnston, product manager, Molex. “zQSFP+ connectors transmit up to 25 Gbps per-serial-lane data rates with excellent signal integrity, relieving some of the pressure on core switches.”

The zQSFP+ TM Interconnect Solution that the EMI Cages are part of supports next-generation 100 Gbps Ethernet and 100 Gbps InfiniBand* Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) applications. It transmits up to 25 Gbps per-serial-lane data rates with excellent signal integrity, electromagnetic interference protection and thermal cooling.

During SC13 exhibition hours, Molex industry experts will be on hand to discuss these and other next-generation solutions at Molex booth 1141. To learn more please visit www.molex.com or sign up to receive Molex e-nouncements at http://www.molex.com/link/register.
