Cost or price-performance is about 1/10th of traditional rack and stand instruments, when considering instrument cost and throughput.

It all looks great and I am sure that are some applications that wil use thse optical cable...but the addition of two O/E converters adds significant burden...could you compare cost and power dissipation between both approaches? Kris
