40Gb/s QSFP+ Active Optical Cable
The QSFP+ AOC offers 4 independent data
transmission channels and 4 data receiving
channels via the multiple optical fibers,
each capable of 10Gbps operation.
Consequently, an aggregate 40Gbps data
rate transmission over 100 meters can be
achieved by this product, to support the
ultra-fast computing data exchange.

AFP’s QSFP+AOC are designed to be fully compatible in
form factor and optical/electrical connection according to
the QSFP+ Multi-Source Agreement. QSFP+ (Quad
SFP+) connectors provide four channels of data in one
pluggable interface. Each channel is capable of transferring data at 10Gbps and supports a total of 40Gbps as
specified for QSFP+.
These interconnects have three times the density of
SFP+ interconnects (MSA), and have been designed to
meet the harshest external operating conditions including
temperature, humidity and EMI interference.
This product converts the parallel electrical input signals
into parallel optical signals (light), by a driven Vertical
Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) array. The
optical signals are converted into parallel electrical signals and outputted. Consequently, each terminal of the
cable has 8 ports, 4 for data transmission and 4 for data
receiving, to provide totally 40Gbs data exchange.
QSFP+ connector style supports connections for an I2C
serial interface, which can be used to identify the product
and performance capabilities.
