Avago Technologies is introducing a line of single-mode SFP transceivers for long reach SONET OC-48 to its METRAK family of SONET products. The AFCT-5745xZ line of transceivers includes high-performance, cost-effective modules for serial optical data communications that range from 125Mb/s to 2.7Gb/s. These units are suitable for OADMs, metro routers and multiservice switches.
Compared to previous form factors, small form-factor pluggable (SFP) modules enable manufacturers to design greater port density into their products. This design flexibility paves the way for the delivery of more value-add services from a single switch or router.
With an advanced digital diagnostic monitoring interface (DMI), Avago's AFCT-5745xZ provides reliable fault isolation, component monitoring and failure prediction capabilities. It also delivers superior ESD/EMI performance, excellent mask margin of over 20 per cent and superior industrial temperature performance (-40 to +85degC). The ROHS-compliant transmitters utilise 1310nm and 1550nm distributed feedback (DFB) lasers.
Avago's digital DMI allows the host to observe real-time temperatures, supply voltage, laser bias current, laser average output power and received input average power. The AFCT-5745xZ is also designed with a three-stage pin sequencing at the electrical interface to be hot pluggable and ensure easy design integration.
The ACFT-5745xZ modules will be available in the second quarter of 2007 through Avago's direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners. For more information, visit www.avagotech.com/fiber.
