Mindspeed Unveils Its M02150 Burst-Mode Driver Chipset Family
Mar 08, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Mindspeed Technologies, Inc., a supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, 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.
In a release on March 5, the Company said the 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 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 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 company CyOptics to create a complete BOSA-on-board reference design that 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 network deployments."
