PMC-Sierra introduced the PAS6500 System-on-Chip (SoC) family of EPON ONU devices. The PMC-Sierra PAS6500 family consists of the PAS6502 for data and voice-over-IP (VoIP) Single-Family Units (SFUs), the PAS6500 for data SFUs, and the PAS6501 for Multiple Dwelling Units (MDUs). EPON ONU devices feature integrated Optical Analog Front End (OAFE) technology. The PAS6500 samples and reference designs are available now. The chips are ideal for Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) applications.
PMC-Sierra introduced the PAS65823A-KIT pluggable GPON Optical Network Terminal (ONT) reference design. The PAS65823A-KIT pluggable ONT reference design enables OEMs and ODMs to easily and cost-effectively connect any customer premises equipment (CPE) using a standard SFP port to a high-speed Passive Optical Network (PON) without any hardware or software redesign. The PAS PAS65823A-KIT pluggable GPON ONT reference design is available now.
