①Power consumption: the power consumption of AOC is higher than that of DAC;

②Transmission distance: The farthest transmission distance of AOC is 300M and DAC is 7M;

③Transmission media: the material of AOC is optical fiber but DAC is copper cable;

④Transmission signals: AOC transmits optical signals while DAC transmits electrical signals;

⑤Price: The price of AOC is much higher than that of DAC because of the optical fibers and lasers.

Generally speaking, DAC high-speed cables is suitable for interconnection distances within 5m and AOC is for 5m-100m.
