"The SY87725L SERDES manages all the high frequency signals in an ONU (Optical Network Unit) and is an ideal low-cost solution for a programmable or upgradeable ONU when pairing with a low cost FPGA," said Thomas S. Wong, vice president high bandwidth products for Micrel. "With the flexibility of the transceiver and the low cost of a FPGA, our customers can provide ONU solutions only limited by their imaginations."
The SY87725L has a 4-bit interface and a double data rate option is included to reduce the clock frequency. This allows the use of the lowest cost FPGA without a significant increase in I/O pins. This device also features a novel auto-align circuit that further simplifies the critical timing requirement. The part operates on a single 3.3V supply with 1W typical power consumption. The parallel 4-bit input/output interfaces feature LVDS I/O. It is available in lead-free (10mm x 10mm) 64-pin and EPAD-TQFP package options.
