August 24, 2009 -- Meritec announced the release of its SFP+ copper network cable assemblies, designed to enable data transfer rates up to 10 Gb/s per channel at lengths up to 7 meters, while meeting current industry standards specifications. Applications include high-performance computing (HPC), enterprise networking, and network storage markets where higher bandwidth signaling is required.

According to Meritec, the SFP+ copper cables support the 10 Gigabit-Ethernet, 8G Fibre Channel and 10G Fibre Channel over Ethernet specifications. The SFP+ assembly utilizes a shielded twin-ax cable construction maintaining 100-ohm impedance matching within 5 ohms to ensure interoperability. The fully shielded assembly incorporates die cast metal housings designed specifically for high frequency data rates, minimizing EMI leakage. Meritec's patent pending pull style latch assures a robust, positive locking attachment and is designed for both standard and "belly to belly" applications based on customers requirements.

A planned future release of the product will feature the company's panel mount secure locking option to eliminate any concerns for stability during high-vibration conditions. Another planned future enhancement is an over-molded nose piece for increased mating cycles achieving 3x the specified standard. Meritec also reports that it has invested in an additional semi-automatic U.S. production facility to assure the product's repetitive quality at an industry-competitive price.
