SFP / SFP+ Host Test Board

GUI Interface with USB Connection

The Timbercon SFP/SFP+ Host Test Board is a high-speed, Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP/SFP+) host board designed for evaluating SFP and SFP+ modules at data rates up to 12Gbps. The host board includes addition features for testing, monitoring, and programming a variety of different modules.

The SFP/SFP+ Host Test Board comes complete with operations software and user manual to enable SFP/SFP+ memory map programming and testing. The board features transmit, receive, USB computer interface, and power supply ports.

The SFP/SFP+ Host Test Board is designed to simulate an ideal environment for SFP/SFP+ module testing. These properties make the host board as electrically transparent as possible, allowing a more accurate assessment of the modules performance.
