Siemon Interconnect Solutions QSFP+ to 4 SFP+ Passive Copper Assemblies breakout cables allow users to connect equipment with QSFP+ ports configured to work as four SFP+ ports. They offer a cost-effective, low-power option to support flexibility in high-speed data center applications.

These high performance direct-attach assemblies support 4 lanes of 10 Gb/s (40Gb/s composite) and are available in standard lengths up to 5 meters with longer custom lengths available.

The high-density QSFP+ connector is on one end with the 4 SFF-8431 Compliant SFP+ connectors on the other end. It features a positive retention pull-release latch system for ease-of-use.

The QSFP+ to 4 SFP+ Passive Copper Assemblies are manufactured using automated welding for unmatched consistency because the welding process results in less dielectric shrink-back than soldering.
