Sunnyvale, Calif.Applied Micro Circuits Corp. launched Yahara, a series of framer/mapper/PHY devices for next generation optical network physical layer solutions supporting 10-Gigabit Ethernet, Metro, and Long Haul network applications.
The Yahara devices are designed specifically for the highly-integrated, low cost and low power requirements of Multi-Service Transport, Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) and Metro/Core switch router applications.
The Yahara product family integrates 10GbE/10G Fibre Channel (FC)/8G FC/OC-192/STM-64 to OTU-2 mapping services, FracN clock synthesizing circuitry, Electronic Dispersion Compensation (EDC), GFEC/Enhanced FEC, and 10G serdes functions in a single device. By eliminating the need for various external phys and interface bridge devices Yahara devices enable telecom OEMs to reduce 10G Optical Transport Unit-2 (OTU-2) transponder and regenerator line card power and space requirements by up to 56% and 81%, respectively, according to AMCC.
