Infineon Technologies has expanded its portfolio of optical networking solutions with the release of multi-rate, multi-channel, high-data-rate SONET/SDH framer chips. The Tethys SONET/SDH framer family of ICs provides functions that are critical for next-generation optical networking equipment in applications such as add/drop multiplexers (ADMs) and digital cross-connect switches.

Allowing manufacturers to increase line card port count and capacity, the ICs also decrease per-port cost and power, and allow a single line card design to be configured for multiple data rates.

The single-chip devices integrate functions such as aggregation of up to 16 channels of traffic, serdes, pointer processing, clock and data recovery, section, transport overhead, and path overhead processing.
