W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc., (Gore) has announced the addition of GORE QSFP Copper Cable Assemblies to its line of products specifically designed for the high-performance computing (HPC), enterprise network and network storage markets. Ideally suited for InfiniBand, 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 40 Gigabit Ethernet applications, these assemblies improve signal reliability at speeds over the standard InfiniBand QDR data rate of 10 Gbps/channel. At the same time, Gore’s unique design and the low dielectric materials used in the cable’s construction improve bend radius over longer distances in small cross-sectional areas.
Sean Souffie, Gore’s product specialist for GORE QSFP Copper Cable Assemblies says, “Our cables have been designed to reach farther than other cables and ease cable management through tight spaces due to their smaller size. They do all of this without sacrificing signal quality and reliability.”
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 marketplace today. GORE QSFP Active Assemblies are currently being field tested and will allow the cable to either extend three times farther or use a smaller diameter cable than a passive interconnect. GORE QSFP Copper Cable Assemblies also provide value to customers through very low latency, reduced jitter and a maximum signal eye opening.
W. L. Gore & Associates, already an industry leader serving the needs of the market for 20-meter-and-under high data rate cables, has a long-standing tradition of not only creating outstanding products with superior reliability, but also developing these products with the end-user in mind. Souffie adds, “Creating a superior cable requires an understanding of a variety of complex issues. For example, technical issues such as crosstalk, jitter, and the relationship between distance and signal quality all have a direct effect on a cable’s design. In addition, the impact of environmental issues such as energy consumption and physical location must be considered during the design phase. Our development team works closely with users from the Top 500 List to ensure that our cables meet all of the HPC industry’s needs high-quality signal transmission, easier installation, improved reliability, and lower maintenance costs.”
The GORE QSFP Copper Cable Assembly is the latest addition to Gore’s line of products for high performance computers, which also includes extended reach cable assemblies, backplane assemblies, and SFP+ cable assemblies. These products include CX4, DDR and QDR InfiniBand assemblies, as well as GbX®, AIRMAX VS®, and ERmet ZD® cable interconnects.
