Product Description

The AT-SP10TW SFP+ direct attach copper cable assembly is a low-cost alternative for short reach applications. The design allows for a serial data transmission up to 12Gbps in each direction. Additionally, the copper cable acts as a natural heat sink. The low power consumption assists in making the passive copper cable assembly an economic solution for within rack or rack-to-rack applications. These copper cables, known as 'direct attach' or 'Twinax,' connect from one SFP+ slot to another without the need for SFP+ transceivers. This is an economical solution for making short 10 Gigabit connections between products and most servers, network switches and monitoring equipment that have SFP+ slots. The direct attach cable is terminated on both ends with mechanical connectors that plug directly into SFP+ slots in the same manner as SFP+ transceiver modules. The one, three and seven meter cables are all passive cables. They do not have signal buffers or amplifiers. The Twinax cable with SFP+ type of connection is able to transmit at 10 Gigabit full-duplex speed. This setup offers up to 15 - 25 times lower transceiver latency than current 10GBASE-T CAT6/CAT6a/CAT7 cabling systems at 0.1 µs for Twinax with SFP+ versus 1.5 - 2.5 µs for current 10GBASE-T specification. The power draw of Twinax with SFP+ is around 0.1 Watts compared to the typical 4-8 Watts for current 10GBASE-T.
