Freescale Announces Cost Reduced Version of its GPON Chipset

Freescale Semiconductor introduced a cost-reduced version of its third generation PON device, which has been shipping in large volumes worldwide.


The new MSC7104 integrates data path engine and Power Architecture technologies to provide high data forwarding throughput rates for the delivery of video and data broadband content to homes and small businesses. The device supports the G.984 GPON Encapsulation Mode (GEM) protocol and is compliant with ITU-T standards.


The MSC7104 combines the high-speed networking capabilities of the PowerQUICC II Pro platform featuring a Freescale e300 Power Architecture technology core and delivers over 8.5 Gbps peak I/O throughput. The GPON media access controller (MAC) and Freescale's hardwired packet engine are designed to achieve Gigabit wire rate packet forwarding. The integrated OMI/CDR supports 2.4 Gbps downstream/1.2 Gbps full GPON rates. Dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet MACs support GMII, RGMII and MII modes and IEEE(R) 802.1p QoS. In addition, the MSC7104 includes a 280 MHz/32-bit DDR2 memory controller.


Freescale is sampling the MSC7104 to alpha customers in Q3, 2008. It is offered in a 456-pin PBGA package. Pricing starts at a suggested resale price of $12 for 10K quantities.http://www.freescale.com
