OFC/NFOEC 2012, NEWPORT BEACH, USA: Mindspeed Technologies Inc. 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 VP and GM, high performance analog (HPA). “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, VP and GM for 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 network deployments.”
