2 Years : From Dec 2011 to Dec 2013
Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:MSPD), a leading
supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure
applications, today announced the M02150 burst-mode driver chipset
family that features a programmable 3.1Gbps dual-closed-loop burst mode
laser driver integrated with an 11.3Gbps limiting amplifier for
next-generation gigabit passive optical network (XG-PON1) networks. The
highly integrated solution features power-saving sleep and current
reduction modes in a compact 4x4 mm package.
The new M02150 device can be used with companion Mindspeed solutions on
the optical line termination (OLT) chipsets side to create
end-to-end uplink and downlink solutions either in traditional optical
modules or interfaced to bidirectional optical subassemblies (BOSAs)
that can be mounted directly onto the XG-PON1 optical networking unit
(ONU) or OLT board to significantly reduce overall
bill-of-material (BOM) costs.
Mindspeed will be demonstrating the M02150 XG-PON1 ONU chipset family
along with a broad offering of XG-PON1 OLT solutions at The
Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition and the National
Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC 2012), from March 6-8,
2012, in booth #1761/173 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. XG-PON1
OLT solutions that will be demonstrated will include the M02035 2.5Gbps
burst-mode transimpedance amplifier (TIA) and M02172 11.3Gbps
electro-absorption modulated laser (EML) driver.
“Mindspeed continues to lead the optical networking industry to higher
data rates and more economical system architectures and deployment
models for fiber-to-the-x (FTTx) multi-play services,” said Hasnain
Bajwa, senior vice president and general manager, high performance
analog (HPA) at Mindspeed. “Our M02150 chipset family offers low-power
consumption, performance monitoring, and dual-closed-loop laser driver
operation in a small, low-cost package. This complete chipset solution
will accelerate the adoption of next generation XG-PON1 networks by
enabling multiservice access equipment to handle higher data rates and
more broadband users.”
Mindspeed has worked with optical component leader CyOptics to create a
complete BOSA-on-board reference design that seamlessly integrates
CyOptics’ XG-PON1 ONU BOSA with the M02150/51 XG-PON1 driver chipset.
“This is another important milestone in our product development
achievements with Mindspeed,” said Kou-Wei Wang, vice president and
general manager for the OEM business at CyOptics. “Our two companies
have once again forged new ground in optical networking technology with
a BOSA-on-board solution that will play an integral role in XG-PON1
Mindspeed®’s M02150 burst-mode driver chipset family features an
integrated 11.3Gbps continuous-mode limiting amplifier with output
de-emphasis compensation for high-frequency transmission line loss. The
company is also introducing a second, M02151 driver that adds
integrated, electrically erasable programmable read-only memory
(EEPROM), which is used to store calibration and performance settings
and can support more than one million write cycles. This feature reduces
overall system cost and optimizes the driver for economical
BOSA-on-board designs by supporting multiple re-calibrations, and
enables it to operate without external control or under the control of
an external microcontroller or media access control (MAC) device.
CyOptics also offers a XG-PON1 OLT BOSA that interfaces with these
devices in an OLT module.
The M02150 burst-mode driver family and M02035 and M02172 OLT chipset
are available now. They can be used in both 10G-GPON - XGPON1/ITU
G.987.2 and 10G-Ethernet passive optical network (EPON)-10G/ 1GBase-PRX
