The SO-QSFP-40G-PCUxM is a passive Direct Attach Cable (DAC) solution of Twinax type| i.e. a copper cable similar to coaxial cable| but with two inner conductors instead of one. A typical application for a SO-QSFP-40G-PCUxM cables is to establish a 40 Gbps link between QSFP+ ports on switches within racks and across adjacent racks.
The SO-QSFP-40G-PCUxM is provided in lengths from 1 to 5 meters (3.3 to 16.4 ft).
The thickness of the cable is defined by the AWG (American Wire Gauge) rating value. The SO-QSFP-40G-PCUxM uses AWG30
rated cables. Please see minimum bend radius requirements below.
