KDPOF’s EVB9351-SFP is Winner of the 2022 Product of the Year by Electronic Products

KDPOF is proud that their EVB9351-SFP 1000BASE-RH Small Form-factor Pluggable transceiver module has been selected by the editors of Electronic Products as this year’s winner in the optoelectronics category. The annual awards, now in its 47th year, recognizes outstanding products that represent any of the following qualities: a significant advancement in a technology or its application, an exceptionally innovative design, a substantial achievement in price/performance, improvements in design performance and a potential for new product designs/opportunities.

EP editors evaluated 100+ products across 13 categories. This year’s winners are: Analog Devices Inc. (Sensors), Exxelia (Passives), KDPOF (Optoelectronics), Micro Harmonics Corp. (RF/Microwave), Navitas Semiconductor (Power), Orca Systems Inc. (Digital ICs), Prophesee (Development Kits), Quectel (Modules), Snaptron Inc. (Electromechanical), Synaptics Inc. (IoT Platforms), TE Connectivity (Interconnects), Texas Instruments Inc. (Analog/Mixed-Signal ICs), and Tektronix Inc. (Test & Measurement).

The EVB9351-SFP is the industry’s first 1000BASE-RH SFP module for optical gigabit connectivity in vehicles. The design of the small-form–factor pluggable transceiver module is based on a standard SFP supporting MSA registers via I2C bus. The module can operate at 100 and 1,000 Mbits/s. It integrates the 1000BASE-RHC PHY and the header connector for the SI-POF optical harness. The EVB9351-SFP supports 1000BASE-X, 100BASE-X and SGMII (with and without auto-negotiation) as electrical interfaces. It monitors the received optical power, the link margin, the junction temperature, and the supply voltages, among others. The new SFP module has been tested and validated in a functional demo.
