Centillium Expands FTTP and Optical Transport Chipset Lines

Centillium Communications has expanded its fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) semiconductor product portfolio with the introduction of its newest optical transceiver chipset families, Zeus 2 and Apollo 2. The Zeus 2 optical transceiver chipsets mark Centillium's entry into the GPON and EPON markets, while the Apollo 2 optical transceiver chipsets are targeted at the SONET transport and enterprise applications.

Both chipsets are manufactured in CMOS technology, and integrate a laser driver, limiting amplifier, automatic laser power control, DDM and an on-board EEPROM.

The Zeus 2 transceiver chipsets enable the transmission of bi-directional burst-mode data traffic for rates up to 2.5 Gbps, and support CO and CPE applications for GPON, EPON and A/BPON infrastructures. Zeus 2 complies with IEEE 802.3ah and ITU-T G.983/G.984 specs.

The Apollo 2 transceiver line enables the transmission of point-to-point, continuous mode data traffic for rates up to 2.5 Gbps, covering Fast Ethernet, OC3/STM-1, OC12/STM-4, Gigabit Ethernet, and up to OC48/STM-16.
