The Siemon Company recently introduced its new line of four lane QSFP+ 40Gb/s active optical cabling assemblies, designed to support interconnect applications such as high-performance computing (HPC), enterprise networking and network storage systems.

Part of the firm’s Moray Active Optical Cabling (AOC) product line, the assemblies incorporate the lowest power transceiver in the market that typically requires 780mw by utilizing Silicon CMOS Photonics technology, which features an integrated opto-electronic chip with directly attached fiber and a micro-packaged laser.

Moray’s single chip transceivers support any distance from 1 metre to 4,000 metres for inter- and intra-building applications.

The Moray product is available in custom length options ranging from 1-4000m. EPROM programming options are also available.
