ColorChip has unveiled the new Meteor III triplexer transceiver platform for fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) ONT applications. The platform supports BPON and GPON optical transceiver modules for the PON market.

Meteor III is configurable to support full service access network (FSAN) compliance. It also meets the requirements in ITU G983.1 and G.983.3 for BPON applications or FSAN compliance, and G.894.2 and G.893.3 for GPON applications.

"Our triplexer transceiver platform was designed to meet the market needs for highly flexible ONU modules and low-cost solutions based on PLC technology. The Meteor III platform is based on ColorChip's proprietary SystemOnGlass (SOG) technology, which enables reduced packaging costs, fully automated production and high yielding modules, thus reducing costs," says Moshe Price, CEO of ColorChip. The technology leverages similar automated systems used for SMT.

The new platform is a single-fiber, tri-channel full duplex module combining WDM Optics for the 1310 and 1490 wavelengths used for voice and data for upstream and downstream data communications, along with a 1550 wavelength for RF CATV, on the PLC chip.

The burst mode data transmitter, characterized by a very high optical efficiency, allows for high CW optical output power levels and low drive current, resulting in high reliability and end of life (EOL) characteristics. Control circuitry is used to stabilize both the average optical power output and transmitter extinction ratio to ensure stable performance of the module. The GPON module is fully compliant to MSA-8472 standard.
