Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) has entered the Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) market with two components: the S3157PBI G.984-compliant transceiver with clock and data recovery (CDR) and the S3165PBI multi-rate (125 Mbits/s to 2.67 Gbits/s) OC-48 transceiver.
The S3157 is G.984-compliant and supports transceiver burst-mode applications. Packaged in a 15- by 15-mm, 196-pin PBGA, the small-footprint device features a low power dissipation of just 650 mW. The part offers 16-bit parallel single-ended or differential LVDS I/Os with built-in termination resistors. The S3157 will easily interface with all standard FPGAs and ASICs.
Designed for WAN applications, the S3165 is a serial/deserial (Ser/Des) device that supports 16-bit wide data interfaces. The S3165's multi-rate functionality supports OC-48/24/12/3 with FEC, HDTV, D1, FC, 2FC, GE, DTV, ESCON data rates. Packaged in a 121-pin PBGA, the device also dissipates 650 mW. It features 16-bit parallel single-ended or differential LVDS I/Os and built-in termination resistors.
Both parts are sampling and evaluation boards of the devices are available. Volume production is scheduled for the first quarter.
