Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) has launched Yahara, a series of framer/mapper/PHY devices for next-generation optical network PHY solutions supporting 10Gbit Ethernet, Metro and Long Haul network applications.

The Yahara devicesS10123, S10124, and S10126are designed specifically for the highly-integrated, low cost and low power requirements of Multi-Service Transport, Dense Wave Division Multiplexing and Metro/Core switch router applications.

The Yahara product family integrates 10GbE/10G Fibre Channel (FC)/8G FC/OC-192/STM-64 to OTU-2 mapping services, FracN clock synthesizing circuitry, electronic dispersion compensation, GFEC/Enhanced FEC and 10G Serdes functions in a single device. By eliminating the need for various external PHYs and interface bridge devices, Yahara devices enable telecom OEMs to reduce 10G Optical Transport Unit-2 transponder and regenerator line card power and space requirements by up to 56 percent and 81 percent, respectively, according to AMCC.

Pricing starts at $210 in quantities of 1,000 or more. The Yahara devices are sampling to alpha customers in Q2 09.
