SHDSL Transceiver Targets High-Density Line Cards

Said to be the industry' lowest power, symmetrical high-bit-rate digital subscriber line (SHDSL) transceiver, the SOCRATES 4 combines four complete SHDSL channels--analog and digital--on a single device. Applications include high-density line cards used in DSLAMs and DLCs. Boasting power consumption of less than 700 mW per channel, the SOCRATES 4 combines an analog front end, line driver, microcontroller, tunable hybrid, framer, HDLC controllers and memory into a single 388-pin BGA package. Available in sample quantities accompanied by a complete firmware and evaluation package, the SOCRATES 4 is priced at $20 per channel. INFINEON TECHNOLOGIES, San Jose, CA. (408) 501-6000.
