AMCC’s industry-leading components provide innovative capabilities such as Electronic Dispersion Compensation (EDC), Forward Error Correction (FEC), serializer/deserializer (SerDes), CDR (Clock and Data Recovery) and FRACn. These features enable efficient, high-performance, low-power building blocks for the highly integrated components that AMCC provides to system vendors, OEMs and ODMs worldwide. These devices enable systems to communicate faster and transport higher densities of data traffic with less design complexity and fewer chips, allowing businesses to innovate, create a competitive edge and significantly reduce time-to-market.
At booth #458, AMCC will demonstrate its recently introduced and sampling Pemaquid/S19258, a XAUI-to-XFI 10G LAN/WAN/OTN Framer/Mapper/PHY device for 10GbE, 10G Fibre Channel, WIS (OC-192/STM-64) and OTU2 network applications. The Pemaquid S19258 enables cost-effective carrier Ethernet solutions for the Metro WDM transport network.
Carrier service providers desire to migrate from traditional SONET/SDH transmission equipment to carrier-grade Ethernet equipment and Ethernet-to-Optical Transport Network (OTN) services. The migration requires cost-effective silicon and Pemaquid is the first physical layer device on the market to enable Ethernet-to-OTN convergence. Prior to the availability of Pemaquid, service providers had to back-end Carrier Ethernet and switch/router platforms with DWDM equipment to enter and exit optical transport networks.
The demonstration will show how 10GbE traffic is generated and mapped into either an OTU-2 or SONET/SDH (OC-192/STM-64) 10G serial signal, and transported out over 120km of fiber before being looped back into Pemaquid. Received 10GbE traffic is checked by the company’s Hawthorne evaluation board for error-free transmission and displayed on a GUI. The AMCC booth will also feature its partnership activity with several customers and partners.
AMCC will also display Pemaquid with Marvell in booth #1039 at Interop. The device will be connected to Marvell’s Prestera® Switch Platform.
In cooperation with the Ethernet Alliance, AMCC will demonstrate the QT2025 and the QT2025-1 XAUI-to-10Gb PHY/EDC devices live at booth #1567. The QT2025-1 supports the 10GBASE-SR/LR/LRM SFP+ optical modules and direct-attach twinax copper cables. The QT2025 supports 10GBASE-KR 10G serial backplane connectivity applications.
The QT2025-1/QT2025 devices are highly integrated ICs with EDC for 1GbE or 10GbE, Fibre Channel, LAN, WAN and SAN applications based on XFP, SFP/SFP+ optical transceiver modules and twinax cable. They are ideal for high port density 10G datacom Ethernet switches, NICs, and telecom line card applications. The QT2025 enables the upgrade of existing backplanes to 1Gbps or 10Gbps (10GBASE-KR) data rates.
