Altera Supplies 28nm FPGA to Power JDSU's Optical Network Test

Altera has supplied its 28nm Stratix V GT FPGA to JDSU for volume production of the company's next-generation Optical Network Tester (ONT) solutions.  JDSU's ONT-600 platform is a multifunctional and multiport solution for testing OTN environments. The interchangeable Stratix V GT FPGA-based plug-in modules within the ONT-600 family provide customers flexibility by enabling a single platform to support multiple technologies, including Ethernet, OTN, jitter/wander, SDH/SONET, VCat, GFP, Fibre Channel and 40G/100G CFP.

Altera's Stratix V GT FPGA integrates 28.05 Gbps transceivers monolithically.  The FPGA supports backplane, optical module and chip-to-chip applications through four 28.05 Gbps transceivers and 32 full-duplex, 14.1 Gbps transceivers.
