Our compatible Mellanox Cables – 10G to 400G DAC, AOC and Breakout options offer flexible and reliable ways for high-speed data center interconnections, ensuring seamless connectivity and performance.

Compatible Mellanox Cables

Our compatible product line includes Mellanox Cables – DAC, AOC and Breakout cable solutions that are widely used for short distance connections ranging from 10G to 400G data rates in data centers. We have carefully analyzed the product datasheets of Mellanox (Nvidia) LinkX DAC and AOC cables, and we have mapped our products to the Part Numbers of Mellanox (Nvidia) LinkX OEM versions to make the work easier for data center engineers. Our compatible Mellanox DAC, AOC, and Breakout Cables are designed based on our own products, which can be seamlessly integrated with various Mellanox (Nvidia) datacenter equipment units such as routers, switches, and network interface cards.

Our compatible Mellanox DAC cables are ideal for connecting equipment ports that are within 10 meters of each other, while AOC cables should be considered for longer distances. Our solutions are adapted for effective operation across all common Mellanox (Nvidia) datacenter equipment units, offering flexibility and reliability for high-speed interconnections in data centers. Mellanox Cables (Direct Attach Copper) are cost-effective high-speed copper cables that do not use optical lasers while AOC (Active Optical Cable), on the other hand, are high-speed optical cables with built-in optical transceivers for multi-mode optical fiber interconnections. AOC cables have several advantages, including being lighter, reaching longer distances (up to 100 meters compared to DAC’s 10 meters), having a smaller bending radius, and being more resistant to electromagnetic radiation (EMI). AOC cables are also easier to install and have less optical budget loss compared to traditional solutions with separate transceivers and patch cables. Moreover, AOC cables are safer as they have fewer potential failure points due to the absence of optical connectors. We’d love to hear from you – Contact Us!

Mellanox 400G QSFP-DD Cables

In 400GbE Ethernet applications, our compatible Mellanox 400GbE QSFP-DD Direct Attach Copper Cables are high speed, cost-effective alternatives to fiber optics. Our compatible Mellanox’s unique quality passive copper cable solutions provide power-efficient connectivity for short distance interconnects. They let data centers use less power and have higher port bandwidth, density, and configurability at a low cost. The Mellanox (NVIDIA) 400G QSFP-DD passive copper cable compatible has 16 high-speed copper pairs that can each handle up to 50Gb/s of data. At the moment, this type of cable comes in a length of 2.5m.

Our compatible Mellanox 400GbE QSFP-DD active fiber cable is constructed of an OM3 multimode fiber optic cable with QSFP-DD form factor modules on both ends. The Mellanox (NVIDIA) 400G active optical cable is designed for 400G Ethernet and is optimal for short-range applications in data center interconnect and high-performance computing networks. This series is available in lengths between 3 and 50 meters.

Mellanox QSFP28 Cable

Our compatible Mellanox QSFP28 Direct Attach Copper (DAC) Cable assemblies are high speed, cost-effective alternatives to fiber optics in 100Gb/s Ethernet applications. These copper cable solutions provide power-efficient connectivity for short distance interconnects. They enable higher port bandwidth, density and configurability at a low cost and reduced power requirement in the data centers. Compliant with the 100G Ethernet (100GBASE-CR4) standard, our compatible Mellanox 100GbE cables feature four independently operating 25 Gbps lanes. This series is available in lengths between 0.5 and 3 meters.

Meanwhile, our Mellanox AOC Cable compatibles are an excellent alternative for datacenter interconnects when it is important to build linkages across short distances that are high speed, resilient, and power efficient. Typically, these instances include rack-to-rack linkages within the same equipment room. Our Mellanox AOC Cable compatibles are available in lengths ranging from three meters to one hundred meters.

Mellanox Breakout Cable

Our Mellanox breakout cable compatibles can come in handy when you need to connect devices with different speeds over short distances of 1 to 5 meters. We can provide Mellanox 100GbE Breakout cables and Mellanox 40GbE Breakout cables compatibles. The Mellanox 100G breakout cable provides an interconnection option of 100GbE QSFP28 to 4x25GbE SFP28 while Mellanox 40GbE breakout cable connects 40GbE QSFP+ to 4x10GbE SFP+ interfaces.

Mellanox 56Gbe Cables

Mellanox 56Gbe AOC’s (Active Optical Cable) compatibles utilize InfiniBand technology, which allows for 4×14 Gbe transmissions, has OM3 cable and QSFP+ modules on both ends, with distance ratings varying from 1 to 50 meters. Our compatible Mellanox 56Gbe cables can help to build efficient InfiniBand data center interconnections.

Mellanox SFP56 Cable

Mellanox 50G PDAC’s (Passive Direct Attach Cables) compatibles are fully passive high-speed Copper cable assemblies, providing 2 times higher bandwidth than SFP28. Mellanox DAC cables are compliant with SFP56 Multi Source Agreement (MSA) SFF-8402 industry standard. 50G DACs are capable of data rates from 10.31 Gbps up to 53.125 Gbps and distances up to 3 meters.

Mellanox QSFP+ Cable

Our compatible Mellanox QSFP cables provide robust connections to 40GbE Ethernet systems. The 40G QSFP+ DACs feature four independent 10Gbps lanes in each direction to support a combined data transfer rate of 40Gbps. Ourcompatible Mellanox QSFP cables solutions provide power-efficient connectivity for short distance interconnects and they enable configurability at a low cost and reduced power requirement in the data centers. Our Mellanox QSFP+ copper direct-attach cable assembly compatibles are available in lengths ranging from 0.5 meters to 3 meters.

However, our compatible Mellanox QSFP+ active optical cables (AOC) are designed for use in 40GbE Ethernet systems. Our 40G AOC Cable Mellanox compatibles feature 4 parallel lanes, each operating at 850nm using VCSEL lasers on the transmitter and receiver side—PIN Photodiodes. These AOC offers high port density and configurability, and a much longer reach than passive copper cables in the data centers. Since the AOC is hot pluggable, it is easy to install and replace. Our compatible Mellanox 40G AOC cables are available in range in length from 3m to 100m.
