What is claimed is:

1. A pluggable module comprising:

a housing having a first end and second end,

an edge connector disposed at the first end,

an F-type coaxial connector at the second end, and

a miniature balun disposed within the module for converting between a single-ended input to a differential load.

2. The pluggable module of claim 1 wherein the first end and the edge connector are compliant with Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) specifications.

3. The pluggable module of claim 1 wherein the balun omits at least one of the following elements: a) thru-hole leads; b) over-molding; and c) ferrite core of low magnetic permeability.

4. The pluggable module of claim 1 wherein the balun provides at least one of the following elements: a) surface mount leads; b) ferrite core of high magnetic permeability; c) an overall height of the balun package being restricted for use within the envelope dimensions provided by SFP specification.

5. The pluggable module of claim 1 wherein the module is miniaturized by providing a printed circuit board (PCB) having components on both sides of the PCB and the balun having surface mount leads for mounting to pads on a first side of the PCB and facilitating mounting of other components on a second side of the PCB.

6. The pluggable module of claim 1 comprising a release lever including a stamped body that is symmetrical about a centerline bisecting the length of the body.

7. The pluggable module of claim 6 wherein the body is stamped from a flat metallic sheet.

8. The pluggable module of claim 6 wherein the body includes three segments, the first segment forming a generally "H" shaped release member, an opposite second segment having side serrations for receiving a button thereon and a third segment disposed between the first and second segments, the third segment having an opening and a tab extending into a bottom portion of the "H" shaped member.

9. The pluggable module of claim 8 comprising a module enlarged end having a lever mating area including a finger disposed within the opening; a resilient member for receiving the tab thereon and a pair of legs of the "H" shaped portion for sliding and engaging a release tab.

10. The pluggable module of claim 1 wherein the housing is cast from one of aluminum aluminum alloy, zinc and zinc alloy.

11. The pluggable module of claim 1 further comprising a Gfast wireline physical layer.

12. The pluggable module of claim 1 further comprising a G.now wireline physical layer.

13. The pluggable module of claim 1 further comprising a VDSL/VDSL2 wireline physical layer.

14. A pluggable module comprising:

a housing having a first end and second end,

an edge connector disposed at the first end,

an F-type coaxial connector at the second end, and

a release lever including a stamped body that is symmetrical about a centerline bisecting the length of the body.

15. The pluggable module of claim 14 wherein the body is stamped from a flat metallic sheet.

16. The pluggable module of claim 14 wherein the body includes three segments, the first segment forming a general "H" shaped release member, an opposite second segment having side serrations for receiving a button thereon and a third segment disposed between the first and second segments, the third segment having an opening and a tab extending into a bottom portion of the "H" shaped position.

17. The pluggable module of claim 14 comprising a module enlarged end having a lever mating area including a finger disposed within the opening; a resilient member for receiving the tab thereon and a pair of legs of the "H" shaped portion for sliding and engaging a release tab.

18. The pluggable module of claim 14 further comprising a miniature balun disposed within the module for converting between a single-ended input to a differential load.

19. A method of assembling a pluggable module comprising the steps of:

obtaining a balun having a ferrite core having high magnetic permeability;

mounting the balun to a first side of a printed circuit board (PCB) via a surface mount process;

mounting other components to a second side of the PCB;

casting a housing from an alloy;

stamping a release lever from a flat sheet of metal;

forming the release lever by bending the flat metal to form a first, second and third segment of the release lever.

20. The method of claim 17 wherein the body of the release lever is formed to provide, the first segment forming a generally Ή" shaped release member, an opposite second segment

having side serrations for receiving a button thereon and the third segment disposed between the first and second segments, the third segment having an opening capable of receiving a tab extending into a bottom portion of the "H" shaped member.

21. The method of claim 19 further comprising the steps of mounting a balun on a first side of a two sided PCB, the balun mounted using surface mount tails to provide a low profile mounting orientation and mounting the PCB to a flange that supports an F-type connector, the flange having a clip for soldering to a pad on the PCB.
