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.
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.
