The Siemon Company has announced the release of a new QSFP+ (Quad Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus) to SFP+ (Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus) hybrid passive copper cable assembly. The hybrid fanout cables break a single 40Gb/s QSFP+ connector into four individual 10Gb/s SFP+ connectors, allowing users to connect multiple ports of SFP+ equipment to QSFP+ based equipment with a single, easy-to-manage assembly.

The direct-attach hybrid assembly’s four hot-pluggable SFP+ connectors are factory-terminated to twin-axial shielded cable to provide superior signal integrity in support 10+Gb/s high frequency data rates, the company says. The assemblies are impedance matched to ensure interoperability with SFP+ host ports and minimize insertion loss.

The four 10Gb/s SFP+ legs feed into a single 40Gb/s capable QSFP+ connector. The 4-lane QSFP+ form factor interface supports up to 10Gb/s per lane, providing 40Gb/s composite data transfer rates.
