NVIDIA® MCP1600-E0xxxEyy DAC (Direct Attach Copper) cables are high speed, cost-effective alternatives to fiber optics in 100Gb/s InfiniBand EDR applications.

The QSFP28 passive copper cable[1] contains four high-speed copper pairs, each operating at data rates of up to 25Gb/s. Each QSFP28 port comprises an EEPROM providing product information, which can be read by the host system.

NVIDIA unique-quality cable solutions provide power-efficient connectivity for short distance interconnects. It enables higher port bandwidth, density and configurability at a low cost and reduced power requirement in the data centers.

Rigorous cable production testing ensures best out-of-the-box installation experience, performance and durability.
