DIRECT ATTACH CABLES (DACs)

Champion ONE's complete line of active and passive direct-attach cables (DACs) can offer an ideal connectivity solution for nearly any switch and server environment in a central office or main data center. Our multi-platform programming capabilities allow you to connect equipment from multiple OEM platforms simply and seamlessly.

All DACs are programmed in tested in system in our United States lab facilities for guaranteed compatibility.


Passive DACs

Champion ONE’s passive DACs feature data rates from 1G to aggregate rates up to 400G total bandwidth over distances up to 10m. They provide robust connections which do not require power from the connector, and support higher data rates than traditional copper interfaces.

Passive DACs are ideally suited for the following applications:

  • High-capacity I/O in storage area networks (SANs)
  • Network-attached storage (NAS) and storage servers
  • High-bandwidth switches and routers
  • Data center cabling infrastructure
  • Other high-density connections between equipment

Active DACs

Champion ONE’s active DACs support aggregate data rates up to 168GB of total bandwidth, and provide robust connectivity over short ranges (up to 15m), with a lower power consumption than most optical transceivers (0.2W).

Active DACs are ideally suited for the following applications:

  • High-bandwidth switches and routers, especially Top-of-Rack (ToR) switch environments
  • Storage area networks (SANs)
  • Network-attached storage (NAS) and storage servers
