Choosing TI SigCon devices for SFF-8431 SFP+ apps
The SFF-8431 MSA specification enables 10G Ethernet port side support of various physical media types through the SFP+ module form factor. SFF-8431 defines high-speed electrical specifications for multiple SFP+ host-to-module interface types suitable for specific physical media, from short reach and long reach optical fibre links to Twinax direct attach copper cable links. Consequently, the SFP+ host IC requirements will depend on the interface types supported by the network application. This document outlines the SFP+ physical medium dependent (PMD) options, and assists in mapping them to product part numbers from TI's Signal Conditioning (SigCon) family.
