Conexant Delivers First SoCs For Fiber Optic Gateways

Said to be the industry's first family of system-on-chips for Gigabit and Gigabit Ethernet passive optical network (GPON/GE-PON) residential gateway applications, the CX95202 Xenon-IIIG GPON and the CX95203 Xenon-IIIE GE-PON devices target optical network units that are used on the client-side of fiber-to-the-premises networks. The devices have a processing capacity in excess of 10 Gb/s. Both devices are pin- and software-compatible, enabling developers to address GPON and GE-PON deployments with the same hardware and software platform. The devices can also be used with the company's VDSL2 CO and customer-premises equipment devices for fiber-to-the-node applications. Ensuring interoperability, the SoCs are based on ITU G.984 and IEEE 802.3ah PON industry specifications, respectively. Xenon-IIIE also complies with China Telecom's EPON specification. Available in 824-pin PBGA packages with production slated for July, price for either device is $29.50 each/10,000. CONEXANT SYSTEMS INC., Red Bank, NJ. (888) 855-4562.
