10-GbE PHY withstands industrial temperatures


Sunnyvale, Calif.—Applied Micro Circuits Corp. announced a 10GbE PHY that is pin-to-pin compatible with the recently announced PEMAQUID S19258.

The S19263 is a XAUI to XFI 10G LAN/WAN PHY industrial temperature device for 10GbE, 10G Fibre Channel, and WIS (OC-192/STM-64) network applications.

The S19263 represents AMCC's second device in its MEtrON (Metro Ethernet Optical Networks) product family. It is a highly integrated XAUI to XFI physical layer integrated circuit for Ethernet and Fibre Channel LAN and WAN applications based on SFP+ or XFP optical modules.

The S19253 complements AMCC's QT2025 LAN/WAN PHY with EDC by providing a product that supports operation in a -40°C to +85°C industrial temperature environment, critical for Metro-Ethernet and Carrier Ethernet applications. It is also fully compliant to IEEE 802.3-205 and XFP4.5 standards.

The S19263 supports 10GBASE-SR/LR/ER and 10GBASE-SW/LW/EW fiber optic PMDs. It supports XFP modules and single mode fiber SFP+ modules and is forward compatible with AMCC's recently announced PEMAQUID S19258 10G Framer/Mapper/PHY device with built in G.709 GFEC and EFEC. The S19263's mechanical and ball map configuration, as well as its register maps, are forward compatible with the PEMAQUID S19258. As a result, the S19263 provides an easy migration path from XAUI to XFI 10G LAN/WAN to XAUI to XFI LAN/WAN/OTU-2 applications utilizing XFP and SFP+ optical modules.

With an integrated FRACn synthesizer, it requires one low cost external reference oscillator to support 10G line rates from 9.954-Gbit/s up to 10.52-Gbit/s, while meeting SONET/SDH jitter requirements. In addition to this timing flexibility, the S19263 device features WIS framing and 10GbE LAN pass-thru modes.

The S19263 is available in a 19×19 package, and consumes less than 2.5 watts in a typical LAN application.

The recently announced PEMAQUID S19258 will be featured in demonstrations on the exhibit floor at AMCC's booth # 3015 at the upcoming the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC) and the National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (NFOEC) in San Diego, February 26 ” 28.

Availability: Sampling in March 2008 to alpha customers.
