Number of fibers 1300 inside 1mm, each core diameter is 24.8-μm (microns), in comparison average human hair is about 90-μm
Advantages of small core fiber:
- Small cores significantly lowers (almost eliminate) "Modal Dispersion" in comparison to Standard Single core 1000-μm fiber.
What is dispersion?
It is a High Order Mode signal delay that is caused by light bouncing from side to side in the core fiber. The signal spreading in 24-μm fiber is much, much lower than the single core POF 1000-μm fiber. The smaller the fiber core the smaller the modal dispersion.
Modal Dispersion is not much of a problem with 16-bit low frequency (48kHz) audio but it starts to be noticeable already with 16bit/96kHz. At 24/96 kHz modal dispersion causes the signal to fail in most Large (1mm) Single Core (SI) POF.
When adding high frequency to the equation, (in single large core fiber) the pulse modes that bounce from side to side arrive slower that the modes that travel through the centre of the core and causes the signal to fail.
- Bend Radius. With Small Core the bend radius is 1mm in comparison to the standard single core fiber requirement was more than 9mm.
- Light weight and flexible, no need for heavy armored cables and/or extra protection vs. Glass Toslink Cable.
- Bend Radius 1mm
- Attenuation less than 0.6dB per meter @650nm.
- Numerical Aperture (N.A.) 0.5
- Supports 24/196 kHz signal
