SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ: AMCC), a global leader in embedded Power Architecture(TM) processing, optical transport and storage solutions, today announced a 10GbE PHY that is pin-to-pin compatible with the recently announced PEMAQUID S19258. The S19263 is a XAUI to XFI 10G LAN/WAN PHY industrial temperature device for 10GbE, 10G Fibre Channel, and WIS (OC-192/STM-64) network applications.

The S19263 represents AMCC's second device in its MEtrON (Metro Ethernet Optical Networks) product family. It is a highly integrated XAUI to XFI physical layer integrated circuit for Ethernet and Fibre Channel LAN and WAN applications based on SFP+ or XFP optical modules.

The S19253 complements AMCC's QT2025 LAN/WAN PHY with EDC by providing a solution that supports operation in a -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C industrial temperature environment, critical for Metro-Ethernet and Carrier Ethernet applications. It is also fully compliant to IEEE(R) 802.3-205 and XFP4.5 standards.

"Unlike climate controlled locations such as customer premises and data centers, industrial-grade components designed for LAN and WAN applications must meet telco-grade standards in order to ensure high reliability in extreme temperature environments," said Michael Howard, Principal Analyst and Co-Founder at Infonetics Research. "The AMCC design team ensured that the S19263 meets these industrial temperature requirements, while making the device pin-compatible with the recently announced PEMAQUID S19258 framer/mapper/PHY."

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
