Ethernet in Infrastructure: High Value-Added Systems and Services for Enterprise (Part 3/3)

Microsemi’s leading reverse power feeding (RPF) technology enables remote powering of the distribution point unit (DPU) from the
customer premise gateway.

Key Advantages
• I2C-manageable reverse power feeding with FairPower™ sharing (<3% current match), configurable dynamic power sharing, and multiple reference designs available • MeLT solutions for voice and line testing with separate SLIC, CODEC, and LTAS for easy debugging, as well as single/dual (EU/NA) LTAS versus four for competition • and xDSL line drivers with reference designs, suited for analog front end subsystems • Ultra-low jitter, small footprint timing ICs including clock synthesis, rate conversion, and fanout buffers for easier, high-reliability clock tree designs • Ethernet PHYs and network processors with G.999 support at the processor, and flexible single–quad 10GE PHYs with multiple interface options
