QSFP-DD to 2x QSFP56 Passive Breakout DAC Cable

Volex’s QSFP-DD (Double Density) to 2x QSFP56 passive breakout Direct Attach Cable features 8 50Gbps channels with PAM-4 modulation for each of the transmitting and receiving directions. The breakout cable is offered in a 400Gbps (QSFP-DD) to 2x 200Gbps (2x QSFP56) configuration. The cable assembly meets IEEE 802.3cd 50GBase-CR and 100GBase-CR2 standard with substantial signal integrity margin providing high performance and bandwidth interconnect solutions for high-density applications.

As next-gen data centres deploy faster speed in a tighter space, they need high performance cables that reduce power consumption, provide reliable operation and are low cost. This breakout cable assembly is designed to meet the next-gen data centre needs offering the smallest cable outer diameter and bend radius and highest flexibility while meeting or exceeding the MSA signal integrity specification.
