SAN DIEGO -- Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) (Nasdaq:AMCC), today announced the S76801 transmitter with Clock Synthesizer Unit (CSU), the S76802 receiver with Clock and data Recovery Unit (CRU) and post amplifier and Pecos (S76804PBI), a highly-integrated single-chip OC-768 SONET/SDH interleaver/disinterleaver with 40G FEC/digital wrapper. The S76801/S76802 and Pecos devices demonstrate AMCC's continued ability to provide outstanding flexibility, exceptional reliability and a high level of integration, while simultaneously maximizing performance for the 40 Gbps marketplace. Building upon AMCC's commitment to being a complete solution provider, the S76801 and S76802 chipset easily interfaces with the Pecos interleaver/disinterleaver as well as AMCC's industry-leading S76800 transimpedance amplifier (TIA) and S76803 modulator driver. The S76801 (16:1 Mux) and S76802 (1:16 DeMux) Silicon Germanium (SiGe) OC-768 devices are designed for SONET/SDH short and long-haul applications. The fully integrated mux/demux chipset is offered in a compact, V-connectorized package that simplifies system design and can easily operate over the STS-768 (39.813 Gbps) to STS-768 with ITU-T G.709 Forward Error Correction (FEC) bit rates (43.018 Gbps). "The mux/demux chipset provides a reliable and manufacturable SiGe solution, providing customers with overall savings in cost, development time and real estate," said Oswin Schreiber, senior product marketing manager at AMCC. In a separate release: Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) (Nasdaq:AMCC), today announced the availability of Potomac (S4808PBI), a highly-integrated single-chip OC-48c SONET/SDH Framer/POS-ATM Mapper with integrated clock recovery (CDR) and clock synthesis (CSU). Potomac's high level of integration offers a significant reduction in board real estate compared to existing solutions. AMCC's commitment to providing high-levels of functionality is again realized by the device's ability to provide full-duplex mapping of HDLC encapsulated packets or ATM cells into SONET/SDH payloads for OC-48 data streams. In addition, a Direct Map Mode is available for clear-channel mapping directly into the SPE for Ethernet over SONET (EOS) applications. Building upon AMCC's success with both the Yukon and Amazon solutions, Potomac offers a proven and reliable third generation single device solution. When combined with AMCC's single-chip OC-48c network processor (nP7250) and 10Gbps Traffic Management chipset (nPX5700), it provides a unified fiber-to-fabric for IP router or ATM switch applications. "Potomac yet again proves AMCC's expertise in mixed-signal designs at multi-gigabit rates by combining an integrated SERDES and CDR with standards compliant jitter tolerance in a single device while offering low power, low cost and small form factor," said Mark Boone, product marketing manager, framer-layer products division at AMCC. In a separate release: Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) (Nasdaq:AMCC) today announced the Silicon Germanium (SiGe) S3093 transmitter with superior performance capabilities. Optimized for operation from 10.7 to 12.7Gbps, the S3093 device features an outstanding combination of jitter performance, edge rates of 10 picoseconds at 1.5V differential output swings, and system performance exceeding 30GHz of bandwidth. Together, these specifications provide unparalleled eye diagram characteristics with a 95 percent eye opening, enabling customers to achieve greater distances and reductions in overall system costs. The wide operating range of the S3093 allows for the use of stronger Forwarded Error Correction (FEC) codes, giving customers higher optical coding gain for improved transmission quality. In addition, the S3093 allows for the transport of FEC encoded 10Gigabit Ethernet data via the 11.1Gbps line rate within Metropolitan applications. "The most stringent Metro and Long-Haul applications can really benefit from the exceptional signal integrity that is beyond the reach of CMOS technology today," said Brent Little, senior vice president and general manager of AMCC's Mixed Signal Product Division for AMCC. "AMCC's S3093 transmitter features edge rates, output amplitude, bandwidth, and overall eye opening that is unachievable in the latest CMOS technology, further demonstrating AMCC's commitment to deliver the optimal technology for this market segment."
