Paper Abstract

This talk will present a new category of optical interconnection solutions based on an intelligent active cable concept. The inset of the Smart cables is to be fully plug-compatible with existing electrical copper-based cable sockets. By powering upt the Smart cables through the electrical socket the new cable can have active fiber optic elements or active cable equalization to extend the reach of conventional passive copper cables. Specific characterization data will be provided on Alvesta four-channel transceiver solution.
