USB optical fibers

USB to Fiber Optic to USB

Active Optical Cable (AOC) USB3.0 provides the same electrical inputs as a traditional copper cable, but uses optical fibers between the connectors. An AOC can extend the transmission up to 100 meters by using multimode fiber. The conversion from electrical to optical improves the speed and distance characteristic of the cable without sacrificing compatibility with the standard USB connector interface. Up to 100 meters in multimode fiber, a transmission rate of 5 Gbit/s is possible.
