ADLINK Technology SFP+ Card

ADLINK Technology SFP+ Card is a 10GbE Optical Fiber Network Adapter that delivers fast 10Gbps network access. The SFP+ Card converts up to four 10GBASE-KR interfaces and related sideband signals to four 10GbE optical fiber interfaces and SFP+ transceivers, through up to two 10GbE optical fiber PHY. 

The SFP+ Card can only be used on products that are PICMG COM Express (COM.0 Rev. 3.0, Type7) compliant.

By using the 10GbE SFP+ Card with a Express-BASE7 reference carrier board and COM Express Type 7 module (with 10GbE controller supporting optical fiber mode), designers can quickly emulate the functionality of their end product for software development and hardware verification. Applications include entry level cloud storage platforms and communications servers.


  • Input features up to four 10GBASE-KR and related sideband signals from COM Express Type7 module through 164-pin edge connector (PCIe x16 slot PCIEKR on Express-BASE7)
  • Output includes up to four 10GbE optical fiber signals (10GBASE-SR, 10GBASE-LR) through SFP+ connectors to connect to SFP+ transceivers
  • Two status LEDs for each 10GbE SFP+ port (link and activity)
  • Inphi CS4227 Optical Fiber PHY (two 10GbE ports, default BOM configuration)
  • Converts 10GBASE-KR and sideband signals to 10GBASE-SR, 10GBASE-LR
  • Dedicated EEPROM for PHY firmware
  • 168mm x 107mm PCB, including edge connector
  • 0°C to +60°C operating temperature range
  • PICMG COM.0: Rev 3.0 Type 7 specification compliance
