# Product Documentation
# Product Description

  40G-ADAC-QSFP is Multi-Vendor MSA Compatible 40G Active Twinax Cable, operating over copper cable. 40G Active twinax cable is equipped
with MSA standard compatible QSFP+ transceiver assembly at each end of cable. Main difference distinguishing active Twinax cable from
similar passive twinax is that this assembly is equipped with chip-sets performing regeneration and boosting electrical signal translated
over copper lanes, thus allowing reaching greater distances via copper media and not losing transmission quality. 40G Active Twinax cable
supports 4 separate fully duplex copper data lanes, which support 2.125-41.2 Gbps multi-rate communication and such applications as
40G Ethernet (41.25Gbps) | 10G Ethernet (10.31Gbps) |10G Fiber Channel (10.52 Gbps) | 8G Fiber Channel (8.5 Gbps) |4G Fiber Channel (4.25
Gbps) |2G Fiber Channel (2.125 Gbps) |4 x InfiniBand QDR (32Gbps) |4x InfiniBand DDR (16Gbps) |4x InfiniBand SDR (8Gbps). Most popular
applications of 40G Active Twinax Cables are cost effective close range interconnections within equipment room of telecom operators or
data centers, interconnecting LAN or SAN applications with speeds up to 40G.

    40G Active Twinax Cable is CE/RoHS certified and it is Compliant with product safety standards. 40G-ADAC-QSFP is fully compliant to
QSFP+ Multi Source Agreement SFF-8436. Consequently, it means that module is compatible with 80% of networking equipment, where
is not implemented a special algorithm for protection against third party modules. However – we can provide 40G Active Twinax Cable
with custom-encoded firmware in order to make it work almost in any equipment and we can support encoding of each end to support
different vendor equipment, allowing using 40G Active Twinax Cable as cross-platform interconnection medium. We will be glad to hear
Your requirements and our sales team will check all relevant details with You during ordering procedure. Our focus is providing top quality
service, we are performing serious quality checks before delivery of our products.
