40Gb QSFP+ to 4 x SFP+ DAC

Sterling QSFP+ to 4SFP+ direct-attach assembly is available in standard lengths up to 7 meters with longer custom lengths available. These Interconnect Solutions breakoutcables allow users to connect equipment with QSFP+ ports configured to work as four SFP+ ports. Optimizing systems to operate with Sterling’s passive copper cables significantly reduces power consumption, EMI emission, eliminating the use of EDC hosts and enlarge the connectivity opportunities of the system. QSFP+ Active Copper Cable design has a signal amplification and a class 10G Clock and Data Recovery (CDR) technology to support longer distances than standard passive QSFP+ DAC cables.
