Alpha has expanded its wide range of off-the-shelf products to meet with our customer's requirements.

We have released a new series of passive heat sinks for SFP/SFP+ and CFP transceiver modules. These heat sinks will utilize Alpha's unique MicroForged fins which offer significantly improved performance and lower pressure drop. Multiple height versions will be available to meet with various mechanical and thermal requirements including PCI, SAN, and Networking environments.

The SFP/SFP+ heat sinks will be compatible with existing SFP cage assemblies and clips. If one of the standard heights does not meet with a particular application environment, a semi-custom version can easily be accommodated with minimal impact to lead time and cost.

The CFP heat sink assembly design is based on the mechanical guidelines and specifications outlined in the CFP MSA.

Details (drawings, thermal data, etc...) are available from our online catalog, SFP/SFP+ and CFP.
