A new range of direct attach copper and fibre cable assemblies has been added to the range of high-speed connectors available from the Enterprise Networks business unit of Tyco Electronics.
The new SFP+ copper cable assemblies and PARALIGHT active optical cable assemblies offer a cost effective alternative to standard fibre-optic cables in 10 Gbit/s Ethernet, 8 Gbit/s Fibre Channel and InfiniBand applications.
SFP+ copper cable assemblies enable hardware OEMs and data-centre SFP+ operators to achieve high port density and configurability at a low cost and reduced power requirement. Tyco Electronics SFP+ copper assemblies meet the industry MSA (multi-source agreement) for signal integrity performance.
The Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable (QSFP) interconnect system from Tyco Electronics is a four-channel package, offering three times the density of traditional SFP ports and supporting speeds up to 10 Gbit/s per channel (suitable for 8 Gbit/s Fibre Channel and 10 Gbit/s Ethernet).
The Tyco Electronics PARALIGHT active optical cable assemblies use state-of-the-art technology to provide cost-effective high data throughput interconnects.
