Avago Technologies has announced it has added 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 high-performance, cost-effective modules for serial optical data communications that range from 125Mbps to 2.7Gbps. The new SFP OC-48 transceivers are suitable for OADMs, metro routers and multiservice switches.

Compared to previous form factors, small form-factor pluggable (SFP) modules enable telecom equipment manufacturers to design greater port density into their products. This design flexibility paves the way for manufacturers to deliver more value-add services from a single switch or router.

With an advanced digital diagnostic monitoring interface (DMI), Avago's AFCT-5745xZ provides reliable fault isolation, component monitoring and failure prediction capabilities. It also delivers superior ESD/EMI performance, excellent mask margin of over 20 percent and superior industrial temperature performance (-40C to 85C). The ROHS-compliant transmitters use 1310nm and 1550nm distributed feedback (DFB) lasers.

Avago's 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 ensure easy design integration.

The ACFT-5745xZ modules are already sampling and will be available in volume Q2 2007 through Avago's direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners.
