Direct attach copper cable, short for DAC cable, is a kind of fixed high speed copper cable assembly widely used in data switching&control room.
DAC cable is comprised of shielded twinax copper cable with hot plug-and-play connectors on each end with different gauges from 24 to 30AWG, the longer the distance, the higher the AWG is.
Olycom offers 10G/25G SFP28/40G QSFP+/100G Q4SFP28 full range direct attach copper cable.
Generally, it can be classified into two types: passive and active DAC cable.
Passive DAC cables have no electrical components built into the cable assembly. Therefor, it entails the minimal power consumption of no more than 0.15w and generally for short reach ranging from 1m/3m/5m/7m.
