AMCC Expands Dual CDR Portfolio for 10Gbps XFP Module Applications; AMCC's S19256 10Gbps Dual Clock Data Recovery Device Offers Adapted Feature Set for Lower Power Dissipation in Cost Sensitive Short and Intermediate Reach XFP Applications.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) (NASDAQ:AMCC) today announced the introduction of the S19256, a 10Gbps dual Clock Data Recovery (CDR) device designed for use in short reach and intermediate reach XFP modules. The S19256 is based on the successful S19233 dual CDR, offering customers a high-performance solution with a modified feature set for reduced power. AMCC remains committed to delivering new products for high-speed data transmission in the 10Gbps market to meet customers' wide range of needs for short-reach applications.

The S19256 features a small footprint 6x6 mm2, compatible with the 19233 and targets short reach (2 km) and intermediate reach (40 km) applications for 10Gbps data transmission for multiple standards including 10G Ethernet, SONET/SDH, or Fibre Channel. The S19256 device is equipped with a built-in equalizer to mitigate data-dependent jitter generated during the transmission of signals in FR-4 material. Customers benefit from this ability to compensate for any deterministic jitter by realizing overall improved system jitter performance. In addition to superior performance, the S19256 provides very high cross talk isolation and can be seamlessly connected on the motherboard to AMCC's 10G Serdes devices including the S19235 or S19237. AMCC's dual CDR portfolio offers designers a single pin-compatible family with optimized feature sets that target different reach and price points for various XFP applications. The S19256 is one-third less expensive than the EDC-based long-reach S19233 offering.

"Customers are pleased to see this broadening in AMCC's PHY product offerings to meet the growing need for a lower-power, low cost 10Gigabit Ethernet optical module," said Sam Fuller, vice president of marketing at AMCC. "The 19233 and 19256 products from AMCC provide a common footprint for both the short-reach and long-reach markets. Most of our customers are offering products for both markets but face different market demands in performance and price. The common design platform of the S19256 and S19233, enables our customers to offer optimized solutions in both markets based on a common product family."

The optical receiver of the S19256 integrates an AGC amplifier with offset cancellation circuitry with the CDR function. The transmit electrical side of this device also has an equalization circuit and CDR that reshapes the data after up to 20" of transmission over copper on FR-4 PWB material, with low jitter generation of 25 mUI. The low-jitter CML interface is designed to be compliant with the bit error rate requirements of the Telcordia and ITU-T standards.


Packaged in a 6x6 mm2 49-pin PBGA, 0.8mm pitch, the S19256 is currently sampling, with volume production scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2006. The S19256 is available in both leaded and full RoHS compliant packages. For additional information on the S19256, visit
