Active Optical Cables
SFPwire® 25G Ethernet SFP+ Active Optical Cable
The SFPwire® AOC is a family of next-generation active optical cables specifically for use between SFP+ ports. Based on II-VI's vertically integrated VCSEL array technology and designed with SFP+ connectors, the SFPwire AOC is lighter and more flexible than comparable copper SFP+ direct attach cables (DACs). The primary application is inter-rack and intra-rack connections within a data center environment.
The 25G SFPwire® is an SFP+ Active Optical Cable designed for use in 25G Ethernet links. The electrical interface of 25G SFPwire® is compliant with SFF-8431 and the receiver side is limiting. The 25G SFPwire® provides non-adaptive input equalization and output emphasis controls as per SFF-8472. The mechanical specifications of the 25G SFPwire® SFP+ ends are compatible with SFF-8432. The 25G SFPwire® is RoHS compliant per Directive 2011/65/EU.
