The new line card device integrates two numerically controlled oscillators (NCOs) suited to network measurement and control systems used in GSM, WCDMA and LTE applications. According to the company three large telecom equipment manufacturers have already selected the ZL30150 for their next-generation routers and switches.
“With the addition of the ZL30150 to our product portfolio, we now offer a comprehensive suite of SynchE and 1588 solutions ranging from individual components to complete hardware and software modules,” said Russ Garcia, Microsemi executive vice president and general manager of the company’s Communications and Medical Products group. “The ZL30150 also allows telecom manufacturers to use their own software to define NCO functionality, and differentiate their products.”
The ZL30150 supports the Synchronous Optical Ethernet ports for 10GBASE-W and 10GBASE-R requiring multiple frequency translation paths to synchronize the optical port with the system backplane and to translate the receive line clock rate to the system backplane clock rate for use in system synchronization.
The ZL30150 is available in volume production quantities now.
