The Gigalight HDMI 2.0 Active Optical Cable (AOC) is used to extend the distance of transmission between HDMI Source and Sink devices, reach up to 100m through a hybrid cable that consists of optical fibers and copper wires. The high-speed TMDS signals are transmitted through multimode fibers, while the low frequency DDC and control signals are transmitted through copper wires.

At the ends of the hybrid cable are a transmitter with a type A plug connected to the Source devices and a receiver with a type A plug connected to the Sink devices. Inside the transmitter, the electrical TMDS signals are converted into optical signals by the VCSEL array; while in the receiver, the optical signals are converted back into electrical TMDS signals by the photodiode array.

The optical sub-assemblies inside the transmitter and the receiver are produced by hybrid integration technology. Semiconductor process and passive aligned optical coupling make the product cost effective. The resulting compact dimensions can meet the specifications of HDMI type A plug.

It is feasible to connect any HDMI devices such as Blue-ray, DVR, projector, video games, computers and mobile to enjoy the high quality display.
