Breakout direct attach cable is a cable that connect a port or a line card to up to 4 other ports or line cards. Nevertheless, the direct connect direct attach cable is the cable that connects one port to just one other port.
The Active direct attach cable is the cable that gives a longer distance transmission due to the usage of some electronics within the modules and both ends of the cable to increase the signals. On the other hand, passive direct attach cords lack the ability to use the electronics, hence leading to a shorter transmission distance.
