We know that 100G AOC active optical cable and 100G DAC high-speed cable both play the role of data transmission.
However, there are some differences between 100G AOC and 100G DAC high-speed cables, and 100G AOC and 100G DAC high-speed cables will be explained in detail.
What is 100G high-speed cable? 100G high-speed cable adopts silver-plated conductor and foam insulated core wire, which has excellent attenuation performance and low delay performance, accurate signal transmission, and can improve the transmission speed. SFP28 dac cable is a popular kind of product.
100G high-speed cable is a short-distance connection solution that replaces optical modules. The price is much lower than that of optical modules of the same type, so it is widely used in short-distance connection solutions.
Since we own an optical transceiver factory, we are pleased to share with you that 100G AOC active optical cable is a communication optical cable that uses external energy to convert electrical signals into optical signals or convert optical signals into electrical signals. The optical transceivers at both ends of the optical cable provide photoelectric conversion and optical transmission functions, with a transmission rate of 100 GB/sec .
In short, an AOC active optical cable consists of two optical modules and a fiber patch cord, consisting of fiber optic transceivers at both ends and OM3 or OM4 multimode fibers of different lengths.
DAC high-speed cables, both ends are connected to switches or servers, usually for short-distance transmission. High-speed cables can be divided into passive high-speed cables and active high-speed cables. Active high-speed cables have one more driver chip than passive high-speed cables.
The "optical module" on the high-speed cable is not an optical module in the true sense. There is no optical device and can only transmit electrical signals. Therefore, the high-speed cable is much cheaper than AOC active optical cables and ordinary optical modules. 400g optical module is available.
High-speed cables can save money and reduce power consumption in short-distance data transmission. This is why high-speed cables are favored in short-distance transmission and solutions.
There are two types of 100G AOC: 100G QSFP28 optical cable AOC and 100G QSFP28 to 4x25G SFP28 optical cable, both ends of the optical cable have optical modules, allowing one-to-one transmission.
The latter has a 100G QSFP28 connector on one end and four 25G SFP28 connectors on the other end, providing customers with 100G data transmission.
The 100G high-speed cable has 100G QSFP28 direct attach cable and 100ge qsfp 28 to 4*25g SFP28 DAC direct attach cable.
Both ends of the cable have optical modules, allowing one-to-one transmission, the latter has a 100G QSFP28 connector on one end and four 25G SFP28 connectors on the other end, providing customers with 100G data transmission.
