Hello, I want to test out a SFP+ transceiver and am looking for a Development Kit or a Daughter card that has an SFP+ connector. If anyone knows of a board please let me know. 

 

Thanks, 

Joe

Joe - 

 

Go here and put "SFP+" in the search box.

You have to filter one device class at a time (Stratix, Arria). When I did this 5 Stratix V boards, 2 Arria V GZ boards, and 1 Arria 10 GX board came up.

Bob, 

 

Hi, thanks for responding to my post. I found a solution that include the Cyclone IV GX Transceiver Starter Kit and a SFP/SFP+ Evaluation Board FDB-1027. The two boards connect using 50-ohm SMA connectors.

Good choice to go with a cheaper dev kit. Have fun!
