Gore QSFP Copper Cable Assemblies

5 January 2009

WL Gore

Gore has announced the addition of Gore QSFP Copper Cable Assemblies to its line of products specifically designed for HPC. Ideally suited to InfiniBand, 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 40 Gigabit Ethernet applications, these assemblies improve signal reliability at speeds over the standard InfiniBand QDR data rate 10 Gbps/channel. At the same time, Gore's design and the low dielectric materials used in the cable's construction improves bend radius over longer distances in small cross-sectional areas.

Gore QSFP Copper Cable Assemblies are also offered with Gore Eye-Opener+ conductor technology, a patented design that yields the highest data rate and longest distance in the smallest cable available in the market. Gore QSFP Active Assemblies are currently being field tested and will allow the cable to either extend three times further or use a smaller diameter cable than a passive interconnect. Gore also provides value to its customers through very low latency, reduced jitter and a maximum signal eye opening.
