Video makes case for active copper cable in data center applications

May 14, 2012
Texas Instruments' Amir Razavi reviews active copper cabling options available for server-to-server and rack-to-rack interconnects in a modern data center.

In a recent Youtube video, Amir Razavi of Texas Instruments (TI) reviews active copper cabling options available for server-to-server and rack-to-rack interconnects in a modern data center. Specifically, Razavi discusses how TI's DS100BR410/210/111 series of 10.3125-Gbps repeaters can replace fiber-optic cabling in runs up to 20 meters, for cost and power savings in data center applications driven by bandwidth demand from cloud computing and implementation of hardware virtualization schemes. TI says the low power repeaters can be used in standard SFP/SFP+, QSFP, CXP, SAS-HD and other fiber connector formats across 10G Ethernet/XAUI, SAS/SATA, Fibre Channel, InfiniBand, and general purpose applications.
