San Diego, CA--January 20, 1997--Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC; San Diego, CA) announced a compact successor to the company's earlier receiver/transmitter pair, which was released last October.
The dual-frequency S2052 gives equipment designers the option to work with one solution that meets a range of transceiver design requirements. The S2052 also establishes a roadmap for future AMCC transceiver products that will allow OEMs to migrate their designs to higher levels of integration and performance.
The S2052 contains a 10-bit data interface and supports all three data clocking options recommended by the ANSI specifications. The transceiver is targeted at applications ranging from Fibre Channel adapter cards, servers, and RAID storage devices to Gigabit Ethernet network interface cards high-speed ports on switches and hubs.
Incorporating an advanced lock-detect feature, the S2052 continuously monitors the incoming data stream for data integrity. This feature eliminates the need for downstream clock multiplexors and a signal detect function on the optical receiver. The lock-detect circuitry guarantees continuous and glitch-free receive byte clocks during start-up and loss of signal conditions, thereby improving system stability.
Packaged with an industry standard pinout in a 64 PQFP, the S2052 uses a 3.3V power supply and dissipates 0.8W. The AMCC S2052 transceiver will be sampling in Jan. 1997, and volume production is scheduled for March 1997. The transceiver is priced at $18.95 per unit in 10,000 piece volumes.
