TE Connectivity (TE) has introduced zSFP+ stacked belly-to-belly connectors that are designed to support data rates at both 28G NRZ and 56 Gbps PAM-4. The upright latching feature for zSFP+ stacked belly-to-belly connectors is a key capability that can accommodate four row belly-to-belly applications to enable higher faceplate density and maximize printed circuit board (PCB) space usage for hyperscale data centers and networking switch applications. 

This expanded portfolio includes 2x4 and 2x12 configurations  to address different application needs. zSFP+ stacked belly-to-belly connectors are backward-compatible to previous generations by sharing the same mating interface and cage dimensions with the entire SFP/SFP+/SFP 28 portfolio, facilitating easy design-in and system upgrades.
