What is DAC?
December 04,2017 18:33:16
Now the DAC is widely used in the SATA device, RADI system, Core routers and 10G or 40G Ethernet data center.
But what is the DAC? Why customers choose it? What are the advantages of the DAC? 
Today we will tell you the answer!

1/ What is the DAC?
DAC is the short of the Direct Attached Cable, and the connector of DAC is the same as modules'. But compared with modules, DAC connectors don't have the expensive laser and other electric chips, so it save much cost in the short distance transmission and as a replacing of the modules in the lower cost, higher benefits network solution.
Direct Attached Cable

2/ What is the structure of DAC?
DAC is made of the silver plated conductor and foam insulated core wire, using the shielding ways to form a higher speed cable.
DAC have the excellent attenuation performance, low latency and anti-interference. Also it can realize the high-frequency broadband transmission.

3/ What are the advantages of DAC?
a.  High performance: used in short-distance data center cabling, using a wide range of integrated solutions exchange ability.
b. Energy saving and environmental protection: high-speed cable internal material is copper, copper natural cooling effect, energy saving.
c. Low power consumption: passive cable power consumption is 0, and active is about 440mW;
d. Low cost: copper prices are much lower compared with the optical fiber.

4/ Which DAC cable can ETU supply.
