MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Aeluros, the leading supplier of low-power CMOS based 10G PHY solutions, today announced the immediate availability of its next generation 10GbE PHY/SerDes devices with integrated clock synthesizers and VCSEL driver functionality. With the availability of these devices- in pin compatible form - Aeluros has added to its industry leading 800mW Puma AEL1001/AEL1002 device family, providing a complete portfolio of 10 Gbps-to-XAUI devices for optical module and line card applications.

The Puma AEL1004, a WIS-enabled version of the Puma product family of 10GbE PHY/SerDes devices, incorporates on-board clock synthesizers that eliminate the need for board designers to provide two clock sources for Ethernet and SONET/SDH rates. With this patent-pending design approach, a single clock input of 155.52MHz is sufficient to drive both the SONET/SDH and Ethernet/XAUI clocking requirements in the device. Additionally, on-board clean-up circuitry also allows the device to provide stratum-3 level line-timing capability for SONET/SDH timing requirements.

The Puma AEL1006 device is a next generation LAN PHY device with integrated VCSEL driver functionality. Reference hardware that demonstrates this functionality in X2 optical modules is also available. This device also includes on-board clock synthesizer functionality that allows Ethernet/XAUI rates to be synthesized from a low-cost 50 MHz input –allowing further cost reduction of the optical modules.

“The continued integration of additional functionality – as shown in the Puma AEL 100x device family from Aeluros – reduces the number of required components per optical module which ultimately results in lower costs”, said Steve Joiner, Technical Manager at Finisar, Corp. “Additionally, the low power consumption of the Aeluros 10G PHY device family is a very important parameter for new optical modules with restrictive power requirements.”
