New GigaPOF® from Chromis Fiberoptics    

GigaPOF® is the next-generation plastic fiber system for Consumer Electronic Applications

Finally—designers, integrators and installers of consumer electronic interconnects have a safe, fast and simple alternative to glass fibers and copper conductors. GigaPOF® is an extruded polymer fiber that is compliant with existing standards and also meets the most stringent building code requirements for consumer electronic interconnect. Faster than copper, GigaPOF® offer a safe, simple media to 100 meters x 10GBPS and beyond!

Consumer Electronics Applications    

Converter Compliance
50 and 62.5 mm Core Sizes:
These available fibers interface directly with existing interfaces via simple LC, SC, ST and custom optical connectors

Active Optical Cables
The precision and simple
of GigaPOF® allows direct connector-free attachment methods in the construction
of active optical cables. This enables cost- effective, backward compatible HDMI, DVI and Display Port interfaces as well as next-generation USB and Firewire.

Bandwidth Migration: GigaPOF® is a graded index fiber offering migration to 10 Gbps and beyond.

GigaPOF® meets EIC Standard 60793-2-40 and meets Plenum, Riser, and LSZH codes.


Ductile fiber: Crimp attached          Mode Coupling: relaxed launch and detect tolerances
Geometric control: The fiber can be used as the ferrule for connector free options and compact packaging.
Simple end-prep
: Enface milling tool for factory automation, hand-held blade cutter for field uses.

Safe and Durable Cables
100% free of shards, ductile GigaPOF® supports a 5mm long-term bend radius, and does not exhibit fatigue like silica fibers.
And GigaPOF®  has no bend-induced cross-talk at high speeds like copper.
