Corning Optical Thunderbolt Cables


Corning Optical Cables can reach bi-directional, dual-channel transfer rates of up to 20Gb/s. They are also backwards compatible with Thunderbolt as well, although they will be limited to 10Gb/s. The cables are extremely thin and flexible; however, they do not supply bus power, requiring you to power your Thunderbolt device using an external power supply.

The cables are available in 30-, 100-, and 200-foot lengths, and since the cables are passing light and not current, they remain electrically isolated, making them ideal for audio and video applications where using copper cables could cause electrical interference and poor signal quality.
