New SFP+ copper cable assemblies developed as a cost-effective and lower-power alternative to optical cables for short reach links in high-speed interconnect applications such as high-performance computing (HPC), enterprise networking and network storage systems.

Siemon's SFP+ High Speed Interonnect

These same cables support serial single lane applications, such as RapidIO, RocketIO and other value-added IO interface links

Siemon, a leading global manufacturer of IT network cabling and infrastructure systems, announces the release of their new high-performance 10+Gb/s SFP+ Passive Copper cabling product family. These SFP+ copper cable assemblies were developed as a cost-effective and lower-power alternative to optical cables for short reach links in high-speed interconnect applications such as high-performance computing (HPC), enterprise networking and network storage systems. The low latency assemblies support data transfer rates up to 10+ Gb/s per lane, exceeding the stringent electrical SFF-8431 and mechanical SFF-8432 Standards Specifications.

Siemon’s hot pluggable SFP+ cable assemblies are fully-shielded with robust die cast housings and enhanced spring fingers to minimize EMI leakage. The internal PCB assembly is factory terminated to twin-axial shielded cable and provides superior signal integrity to support 10+Gb/s high frequency data rates. The assemblies are impedance matched to ensure interoperability with SFP+ host port and minimize insertion loss.

The new 10+Gb/s SFP+ products support a wide array of data protocols/interfaces, including 8Gb/s FibreChannel HCA, 10Gb/s FibreChannel SAN, 10Gb/s FibreChannel over Ethernet, 10Gb/s Ethernet single lane, 10Gb/s InfiniBand QDR single lane and various 10Gb/s Unified Architecture network links as well as other 10Gb/s Switch and Host Controller Adapter card and high performance links.

“These same cables support serial single lane applications, such as RapidIO, RocketIO and other value-added IO interface links,” said Ed Cady, Business Development Manager for Siemon.

Product options available include varied EEPROM programming, wire gauges and assembly lengths for specific applications.
