SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (AMCC) (Nasdaq:AMCC - News) today announced its entrance into the Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) market with the premiere of the S3157PBI G.984-compliant transceiver with Clock and Data Recovery (CDR). AMCC also announced the S3165PBI multi-rate (125 Mbps to 2.67Gbps) OC-48 transceiver, which builds off of the company's successful line of Serializer/Deserializer (SerDes) devices.

The S3157 is the first in a series of AMCC solutions that are targeted at the emerging GPON market. A key supplier of PHY solutions in the Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPON) application space, AMCC continues its commitment to providing customers with standard compliance, high performance, availability and application support with the introduction of the S3157. Designed for WAN applications, the S3165 is an addition to AMCC's family of multi-rate SerDes devices supporting 16-bit wide data interfaces. The S3165 delivers a decidedly integrated PHY solution to system vendors and the multi-rate functionality needed for optimum performance and design flexibility.

"Today, major OEM system vendors are working hard to prepare prototype systems and commence their first field trials. With the ability to interface easily with FPGA solutions, AMCC's S3157 features a 16-bit wide data bus that provides customers with the option to use a lower cost and lower I/O speed FPGA and the flexibility to easily meet their systems' design requirements," said Daryn Lau, senior vice president and general manager for AMCC's Integrated Communications Products Business Unit. "These recent introductions demonstrate AMCC's commitment to delivering state-of-the-art PHY solutions targeting emerging GPON and WAN applications. AMCC is focused on providing cost-effective and highly integrated devices for this rapidly growing market and will continue to offer customers additional products in the coming year."
