Description Datasheet
Mini-SAS HD SFF-8644 to Mini-SAS HD SFF-8644 Active Optical Cable.

This Mini SAS HD AOC is of high-performance with full-duplex and aggregate 48Gbps bandwidth for SAS3.0 protocol in storage applications. Compared to conventional copper cables, longer, lighter, and flexible Optical cables enable the ease of complicated data-center cablings because of its small cable diameter of only 3-mm. High-quality of 850-nm VCSELs and PIN PDs are utilized in the Mini SAS HD AOC cables, with superior signal integrity and bit-error-rate performance, which enables reliable operation performance. Additionally, AOC can easily be substituted by interfacing to systems via a broad range of standard MSA connectors including QSFP+, HD and CXP. The cables are electrically compliant with InfiniBand* FDR / QDR / DDR, Ethernet (10, 40 and 56 Gbps), Fibre Channel (8 and 10 Gbps), SAS 3.0 and 2.1 (12 and 6 Gbps) and other protocol applications.
