Single-chip line card device integrates quad DPLLs for 100G muxponders

February 07, 2013 // By Paul Buckley
Microsemi Corporation expanded the company's optical transport network (OTN) portfolio with the single-chip, ZL30165 line card device for OTN transport and switching applications.

The ZL30165 is the industry's first monolithic line card device for OTN transport and switching applications. The ZL30165 has already been selected by number of leading OTN equipment manufacturers for use in 40G and 100G equipment.      

Key features include four integrated digital phased lock loops (DPLLs) capable of locking on to up to 10 inputs targeting muxponder applications that support multi-client transport on a single wavelength.  The device allows equipment manufacturers to reduce the number of PLLs devices required in 100G applications, which saves board space and reduces bill of material costs.     

Availability     

The ZL30165 is available in volume production quantities now.
