Anaheim, Calif. Avago Technologies released a line of single-mode SFP transceivers for long reach SONET OC-48 to its METRAK family of SONET products. The AFCT-5745xZ line of transceivers includes modules for serial optical data communications that range from 125 Mbits/s to 2.7 Gbits/s. The transceivers are suitable for OADMs, metro routers and multiservice switches.
With a digital diagnostic monitoring interface (DMI), the AFCT-5745xZ provides fault isolation, component monitoring and failure prediction capabilities. It includes ESD/EMI performance, mask margin of over 20% and an industrial temperature range of -40°C to 85°C. The RoHS compliant transmitters utilize 1310 nanometer and 1550 nanometer distributed feedback (DFB) lasers. The digital DMI allows the host to observe real-time temperatures, supply voltage, laser bias current, laser average output power and received input average power. The AFCT-5745xZ is also designed with a 3-stage pin sequencing at the electrical interface to be hot pluggable and allow easy design integration.
