Molex QSFP+ Active Optical Cables
Molex's QSPF+ Active Optical Cables (AOCs) integrated cable solutions feature industry-leading AOCs capable of achieving 40 Gbps data rates over distances up to 10km using a fraction of the power of other brands. The product line features cables with extremely low power consumption of 0.78W per cable end, which is 30% less than the competition. The low-power Molex QSFP+ AOCs help improve overall data-center power consumption and thermal efficiency as well as enable deployment of additional ports for increased number of AOCs per system, resulting in more connectivity options and total system cost savings. In addition, QSPF+ AOCs offer the flexibility of traditional optical modules by interfacing to systems via a standard QSFP MSA connector. QSFP+ to MPO optical cables allow an easy connection to separately installed single-mode fiber through the attached MPO connectors. Molex's QSPF+ AOCs are electrically compliant with the QSFP+ interface InfiniBand SDR/DDR/QDR, Ethernet (10 and 40 Gbps), Fibre Channel (8 and 10 Gbps), SAS (6 Gbps) and other protocol applications. Offered as a less expensive option with streamlined installation, Molex QSPF+ AOCs are well-suited for switches, routers, HUBs, SAN, NIC cards, and Host Bus Adapters (HBA).
