QSFP112 Passive DAC Cable

Volex’s QSFP112 passive direct attach copper cable features 4 transmitting and 4 receiving channels at 100 Gbps with PAM-4 modulation per channel speed. The cable assembly meets IEEE 802.3ck 400GBase-CR4, 200GBase-CR2 and 100GBase-CR1 specifications and is designed for high density applications, where high performance and bandwidth interconnect solutions are required.

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. Volex’s QSFP112 direct attach cable assembly is designed to meet the next-gen data centre needs. The Volex QSFP112 cable pluggable module is compatible with QSFP112 and QSFP-DD800 ports for ease of data centre upgrade.
