15 page 15 / 2012 年 11 月 29 日 星 期 四 QSFP+ (Quad SFP) 4-channels in one interface, providing 3-4X density of XFP, SFP+ Up to 10 Gb/s per channel, total 40G interface Cages offered in single port and ganged configurations Heatsinks and lightpipes available Uses 38 position EVERCLEAR connector Direct attach copper and PARALIGHT optical cable assemblies offered

16 CXP High density up to 12X, supporting 10Gb/s per channel Adopted for 120G InfiniBand and 100G Ethernet 84 position dual row connector interface Designed to support copper and optical links

17 Direct Attach Cable Assemblies - Copper Support higher data rates than traditional copper interfaces from 4Gbps to 10Gbps per channel Interchangeable and hot swappable with fiber optic modules Cost effective solution over optical transceivers and cables for short reach applications Support multiple protocols - Gigabit & 10G Ethernet; 8G FC; FCoE; InfiniBand SDR, DDR & QDR CXP, SFP+, QSFP, XFP, SFP

18 Direct Attach Cable Assemblies - Fiber An alternative to optical transceivers - eliminates the separable interface between transceiver module and optical cable Meets Small Form-factor (SFF) standards No Equipment Upgrades Up to 40Gb/s throughput with QSFP+ 100 meters plus reach Low latency (840ps + fiber prop delay) No EMI Optical Cable Advantages 1/3 Size of Copper Cable 3.0 mm O.D. 1/3 Weight of Copper Cable

19 Applications: High Speed Direct Attach Cable Assemblies High Speed I/O applications in storage, networking and telecom markets Switches, servers, routers, network interface cards (NICs), Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) High Density and High Data Throughput Direct Pluggable Cables include Copper Cable Assemblies Fiber Optic Cable Assemblies

20 Application: Data Center

21 Equipment Distribution Areas Entrance Room Horizontal Equipment Distribution Area Distribution Area Main Distribution Area Direct Attach Cable Assemblies Copper Systems Fiber Systems SFP+ QSFP Active Optical Cable Assembly Cat 6 Gigabit Cat 6A 10 Gigabit Optical Jumpers Trunk Cables

22 ToR Connectivity Option Direct Attach Cables Connects active platforms with no patching up to 15m. QSFP+ and SFP+ cords to switch, server and router for rack connections For speeds of up to 10G/s - SFP+ cables For speeds of up to 40G/s QSFP+ cables For distances greater than 15m fiber optic Direct Attach cables can be used.

23 Data Center DAC Application Low Cost for Short Reach SFP+ Direct Attach the optimal solution for short reach 10 G interconnects. Through aggregation, SFP+ Direct Attach also provides a low cost upgrade path for higher speed (40 G and 100 G) interconnects. Best apply ToR, and even EoR

24 Reach of DAC Cables For cables that operate at a data rate of 10Gb/s per differential pair the typical reach for 24 AWG cable is about 7 meters, for active copper cables a reach of about 15 meters can be achieved. For some applications customers desire smaller wire gauge for improved flexibility, which shortens the reach For new standards that are in process of being developed to support data rates of 25 to 28 Gb/s per differential pair the targeted reach is about 5 meters for 24 AWG cable (IEEE, Fibre Channel, InfiniBand, etc)
