SFP+ Cages

dataMate® developed SFP+ cages to address EMI issues surrounding higher data rate demands. The SFP+ cages are designed for both 8 Gbps Fibre Channel and 10 Gbps Ethernet applications. dataMate’s SFP+ cages are offered with or without lightpipes and incorporation of spring fingers gives the user advanced EMI containment. The one-piece design makes the cage one of the most robust products in the industry. The new multi-port cage with integrated thermal management solves the challenges of increasing bandwidth and decreasing form factors.

NEW Multi-Port Cages with Thermal Management

The trend in the pluggable module space of ever increasing bandwidth coupled with decreasing form factors and contiguous multi-port configurations is creating a new challenge to deal with greater power consumption in small footprints. To address this challenge dataMate® has developed a patent pending SFP+ cage system with advanced thermal management features to prevent data error and hardware failure due to excessive heat.

Thermal simulations clearly illustrate the advantages of this system. In the graphic below, assumed conditions are 3W of power per port (real estimations of 10G Base-T modules), 55°C ambient with 500 LFM airflow. Modules within typical multiport SFP+ cages (as shown on the right) are expected to exceed 100°C in this environment.

Multi Port Thermal Management Cage

Patent pending SFP+ cage system with advanced thermal management features to prevent data error and hardware failure due to excessive heat. This new cage system utilizes a series of thermally conductive compliant fingers that make direct contact with an SFP+ module to dissipate heat from the module housing. These thermally conductive fingers are then coupled to a heatsink designed to maximize heat transfer. Because there are many fingers that are independently compliant, this system accounts for irregularities across the surface of the module. Available in two configurations: DM7060-4-E-H-R, DM7060-4-E-H-N, DM7060-4-B-H-R, DM7060-4-B-H-N. See Technical Library below for data sheets.

How we customize

The heatsink fin design and orientation can be customized to take advantage of the particular airflow in an application, and heat pipes can be incorporated to transfer heat to remote heatsinks for optimal location within space constraints.
