Mindspeed targets gigabit optical networks in China
Mindspeed Technologies has introduced a 1.25Gbit/s transimpedance amplifier (TIA) for gigabit passive optical network (GPON) applications and a 2.5Gbit/s TIA for next-generation XG-PON1 applications.
The burst-mode TIAs offer optical sensitivity of -33dBm for the M02036 GPON amplifier and -29dBm for the M02035 XG-PON1 amplifier. Dynamic range is greater than 25dB.
Both TIAs feature a burst mode average power monitor output that enables receivers to report upstream optical network unit (ONU) optical transmit power.
According to Hasnain Bajwa, senior v-p and general manager, high-performance analogue at Mindspeed, the aim is to offer ”new levels of integration and power efficiency” and play a “pivotal role in accelerating the adoption of next generation broadband technology.”
Mindspeed will be highlighting its M02036 burst-mode TIA for GPON OLT applications and M02035 burst-mode TIA for XG-PON1 OLT applications at the 14th Annual China International Optoelectronic Expo (CIOE), Sept. 6-9, 2012 at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center in Shenzhen, China.
The company will also be showcasing its companion burst-mode laser drivers, along with other members of its family of physical media dependent (PMD) solutions for Gigabit Ethernet PON (GEPON), GPON, XG-PON and 10Gbps Ethernet PON (10G-EPON) applications.
