                          High-Speed Communications

                          Microchip has a large portfolio of high-speed communication ICs for different fiber optic applications with data rates ranging from sub-Mbps up to 12.5 Gbps. For point-to-point continuous-mode applications, a wide choice of limiting amplifiers, laser drivers and VCSEL drivers is offered to cover all kind of applications such as GbE/10GbE, Sonet/SDH and Fibre Channel. For point-to-multipoint PON applications, Microchip offers the burst mode limiting amplifiers family with industry-leading performance for GEPON/GPON, 10GEPON, XGPON and NG-PON2 applications. A family of SFF-8472 MSA fiber optic module management ICs completes the chipset offering. The high-speed communications products also include a family of Clock and Data Recovery (CDR) ICs for operations up to 2.7 Gbps.
