Interchangeable and hot-swappable with fiber optic modules, the company’s SFP+ active direct-attach copper cable assemblies are cost-effective alternatives to fiber optic transceivers and MPO cables in 10-Gb Ethernet, 8-GB Fibre Channel, and InfiniBand apps. Their active design enables a power consumption of 500 mW per cable end. Active cables also incorporate Rx LOS and Tx disable functionality. All SFP+ cable assemblies meet the MSA spec for signal integrity. Both passive and active cables are available in wire gages from 24 AWG through 30 AWG and incorporate a 360° cable braid-crimp termination that suppresses EMI leakage and provides strain relief.
