High-Speed Copper & Fiber Optic Connectors

  • What technical and economic factors may be changing the copper vs. fiber selection process? What may be the practical bandwidth limit of a copper interface? What are the primary advantages of fiber optic communication links?
  • In what applications do mid-board optical transceivers make sense? What is driving interest in “jump-over” cable technology? What advantages do co-packaged optics bring to system design? Are co-packaged optics an interim step toward optical computing?
  • What are the distance limitations (reach) of high-speed copper channels? How is the performance of high-speed copper interconnects quantified? Are there any new technologies that will significantly improve the performance of copper cable assemblies?
  • What standard writing organizations are actively developing the specifications that define the performance of high-speed copper and fiber optic links?
  • What applications will continue to drive exponential demand for data center capacity and speed? Are active optical cables a long-term solution or a transitional tool between copper and fiber networks? How does thermal management issues impact I/O connector selection?
  • What is the current market for medium to short-length high-speed copper cable assemblies? What is the five-year world forecast by region for these assemblies? What is the current market and five-year world forecast for high-speed fiber optic interconnects?

Bishop & Associates research report, High-Speed Copper & Fiber Optic Connectors explores these issues and others. This report offers a snapshot of fiber optic and high-speed copper connector technology and markets as it exists in the fall of 2020, and defines what may be the first steps of a major evolutionary change in the market for this class of interfaces.
