Active Optical Cable (AOC)
Active optical cable is used for short-range multi-lane data communication and interconnect applications. Usually, the wire transmission of optical communication should belong to passive part, but Active Optical Cable is an exception. Active Optical Cable consist of multimode optical fiber, fiber optic transceivers, control chip and modules. It uses electrical-to-optical conversion on the cable ends to improve speed and distance performance of the cable without sacrificing compatibility with standard electrical interfaces. Since people expect more information to be available at their fingertips, our communications systems will need to be quicker, and Active Optical Cable is one of the best solutions to solve this problem. Compared with direct attach copper cable for data transmission, Active Optical Cable provides more advantages, such as lighter weight, high performance, low power consumption, low interconnection loss, EMI immunity and flexibility. At present, Active Optical Cable is widely used in many fields as well as promoting the traditional data center to step into optical interconnection. Buy active optical cables at Fibermart!
FIBERMART’s Active Optical Cable are transceiver products that have fiber optic cables permanently embedded in each end for applications with predictable and consistent link distance needs. Available in edge pluggable variants only, these “ready to use” electrical-to-optical converters provide generations of optical connectivity at data rates up to 100Gb/s and link distances up to 100 meters. Active Optical Cable and passive copper Direct Attach Cables (DAC) are commonly deployed in server to Top-of-Rack type applications, where link distances are typically less than 30 meters. The advantage of Active Optical Cable are longer link distances, less bulky physical cabling and an active digital high speed electrical interface facing the host ASIC. Target applications include LAN Ethernet, InfiniBand, OmniPath and Proprietary Interconnect networks. fiber active optical cables.
The Fibermart Active Optical Cable (AOC) Assemblies for SFP+ Applications is a device to serve 10/40/100Gb Ethernet applications. It is designed to enable 10/40/100GbE fiber network equipment designs with very high port density based on the electrical and mechanical specification. The Fibermart AOC can be used as an alternative solution to SFP+, QSFP passive and active copper cables, while providing improved signal integrity,longer distances, superior electromagnetic immunity and better bit error rate performance.
