Noise-free data transmission is accelerated with active optical connectors

Panasonic Industry Europe says it has increased specified transmission speed from 6.0 to 8.0Gbits per second with the development of its V series of active optical connectors.

Active optical connectors (AOCs) suit all environments where electromagnetic interference (EMI) is prevalent but electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) needs to be assured.

The company has boosted the transmission speeds of its V-series of its AOC portfolio with proven product features such as bi-directional high-speed and wideband data transmission remaining unchanged.

Targeting high-speed optical fibre connections in various electronic devices via an electric connector, high speeds are achieved easily with an AOC, advised the company, benefitting from an “excellent noise reduction and electrical isolation” which are particularly relevant in high interference environments.

The connectors have easy mounting and compact dimensions to make it suitable for smaller designs, in particular applications which require next-gen data transmission speed.
