Introduction of QSFP+ Active Optical Cable

Sopto will release the leading products: short distance InfiniBand and QSFP + active optical cable (QSFP+ AOC) for Ethernet applications. The QSFP + active optical cable product has bright future in the industry.

 

This QSFP+ AOC (Active Optical Cable) that designed and developed by Shenzhen Sopto Technology Co., Ltd. has been completed sample assessment and the first batch of products can release in April 2013.

 

Sopto is the first to break the technological monopoly of foreign manufacturers and become one of the few local suppliers which can supply the product in bulk.

 

QSFP + AOC active optical cable is an efficient integrated cable assembly that designed for application of short-range multi-channel data communication and interconnection.

 

There are four data channels for each signal. And the total bandwidth is up to 40Gbps for a single module. Each channel can work with 10Gbps, and the communication range is from 1 meter to 100 meters, suitable for supercomputers and the application based on InfiniBand standard SDR, DDR and QDR.

 

Sopto is a leader supplier in the fiber optic transceiver module and high-speed cable assembly for exchange, communication, routing, transport, storage and other applications.

 

QSFP+ AOC is the core part of the implementation of parallel optical interconnection. It uses the ribbon OM3 cable to connect the two 40G high-speed parallel optical module (with four 850nm VCSEL emission channel, four PIN receiving channel, data rate is 10 Gbps).

 

"With the increasing demand of bandwidth, and due to the problems of the bulky connector and copper cable, EMI electromagnetic interference, weight management, and other issues, copper coaxial cable interconnects are restricted in certain transmission distance.

 

Therefore, the parallel fiber has become the alternatives in the application of parallel copper cable interconnection.

 

Rita, Sopto fiber products sales director addressed, "QSFP+ active cable and transceiver provide the solution of hot-swap with the date rate from 5Gbps to 10Gbps per channel.

 

Compared with other 10Gbps serial scheme, the QSFP+ scheme can improve port density more than two times, and save the power consumption of more than 50%, that help the systems integration companies to reduce the unit cost of each connection port.

 

Usually, the data rate of copper cable is 10Gbps per channel, but the distance of copper cable is only from 3 meters to 15 meters. If using the QSFP + scheme with optical fiber technology, we can get a longer transmission distance and smaller bend radius.

 

The features of QSFP+:

 

1. Each module contains four independent transmit channels and four independent receive channels;

2. High channel capacity: up to 40Gbps per module, bi-directional;

 

3. Full compliance with 10Gbps QDR IB, and is downward compatible with 5Gbps DDR IB and 2.5Gbps SDR IB;

4. The work speed is up to 10Gbps when using 8b/10b compatible data code;

 

5. The operating temperature range of housing is from 0 to 70 ° C. It conforms to the specification of the QDR InfiniBand architecture version 1.2.1 and SFF-8436 specification of QSFP + optical modules;

6. Compatible with the industry standard: IN-8436i QSFP transceiver specification version 1.0 .

The high-performance and high-density SCFF fiber optic transceiver

The SCFF fiber optic transceiver compared with the existing SFP+, this fiber optical transceiver saves a lot of inner substrate surface, and will not impair the performance or the line board density.     The transceiver has a small size, which is developed by the structure of the SFP+ industry standard by mechanical means.   The power dissipation of SCFF fiber optical transceiver is less than 1 watt. With the compact and simple size, it is very suitable for enterprise storage hardware, NIC, HBA, HCA as well as industry, instrumentation and medical applications.

The classification of PON technology

Since the multiple ONU devices share the same optical fiber medium to communicate with the OLT in PON system, it is mainly to solve the media sharing problems between different ONU.   The main way to solve this problem includes the time division multiplexing (TDM)/ multiple access technology, wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM).   Therefore, the major technology can be divided into TDM-PON, WDM-PON and OFDM-PON.   At present, both EPON and GPON adopt the TDM-PON technology. And the application of EPON and GEPON become wider and the technologies are mature.
