LightSpeed™ 10G SFP+ Fiber Optic DAC (Direct Attach Cable)
10G SFP+ to SFP+ DAC Twinax Cable available in 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 5.0, 7.0 meter lengths
LightSpeed™ DACs are a low-cost way to utilize the SFP+ ports on our fiber optic products and standard 10G network equipment.
DACs (Direct Attach Cables) are a great solution for in-rack or other short connections that would otherwise require fiber optic cabling.

The SFP+ passive cable assemblies are high performance, cost effective I/O solutions for 10G Ethernet and 10G Fiber Channel applications. SFP+ copper modules allow hardware manufactures to achieve high port density, configurability and utilization at a very low cast and reduced power budget. The high speed cable assemblies meet and exceed Gigabit Ethernet and Fiber Channel industry standard requirements for performance and reliability.
These assemblies are called “passive” copper cables because there isn’t any signal conditioning circuitry (e.g. crosstalk or echo cancellation) contained within the SFP+ connector. Sometimes these assemblies are referred to as “DAC” or “Direct Attached Copper” cables. Inside the SFP+ MSA footprint optical cables can be used that require optical transceivers or Active Optical Cables (AOC) that contain the transceiver as part of the cable.
