miniature duplex connector (MDC)

The MDC connector, Miniature DuplexConnector (MDC), belongs to the extremely compact VSFF connectors, Very Small Form Factor (VSFF). These FO connectors

are only a few millimetres small and are therefore characterised by a high connection density. VSFF connectors are duplex connectors that can be combined to form multi-fiber connectors

Due to the compactness of the MDC connector, the port density can be doubled compared to classic SFF connectors such as the LC connector, depending on the configuration. The MDC connector has a push-pull latch and locks when plugged in. The MDC connector was developed for the optical interfaces of SFP modules and QSFP modules.
