Lucent Technologies has selected Xilinx Inc.'s FPGAs for its new 10Gbps tunable optical translator unit, a key component in one of its DWDM-based metro optical equipment offerings. At the core of this advanced design is a Xilinx Virtex-II Pro FPGA, with the embedded IBM PowerPC running Linux.

"Our decision to use the Xilinx Virtex-II Pro with embedded PowerPC processor for the control and communications functions in our 10Gbps Tunable Optical Translator Unit enabled us to meet demanding customer requirements," said Mike Libeskind, a member of the technical staff at Lucent. "Moreover, the Xilinx applications engineering assistance and on-site design support we received were critical in helping us meet our product specifications and schedules. The use of the Xilinx FPGA-based solution enabled us to go to a single board, saving substantial development, manufacturing and test costs," Libeskind added.
