Freescale Develops Voice-Enabled GPON Chipset

Freescale Semiconductor introduced a voice-enabled Gigabit Passive Optical Networking (GPON) SoC. The multi-core MSC7120 integrates a Power Architecture CPU, a "StarCore" DSP and a data path engine to deliver a complete PON sub-system in a single device. Sampling is underway.



Freescale and Alcatel-Lucent initiated joint development of the MSC7120 after the companies agreed in 2005 to collaborate on delivering compatible, interoperable and cost-effective GPON technology to the market.The delivery of rich digital content to the home and small office via fiber takes a major step toward reality today with the introduction of the MSC7120 from Freescale Semiconductor -- the industry's first voice-enabled Gigabit Passive Optical Networking (GPON) SoC.



The multi-core MSC7120 integrates a "Power Architecture" CPU, a "StarCore" DSP and a data path engine to deliver a complete PON sub-system in a single device. It combines the high channel voice density of Freescale's MSC711x DSP device with the high-speed networking capabilities of the "PowerQUICC" II Pro platform featuring Power Architecture technology, a GPON media access controller (MAC) and Freescale's packet engine, which achieves Gigabit wire rate packet forwarding. The device supports the G.984 GPON GEM protocol and is designed to be compliant with the ITU-T standards.
