Semtech Announces 25G Burst Mode Transimpedance Amplifier for Next Generation Multi-Gigabit PON

Latest addition to the PON-X® portfolio designed to meet next generation passive optical network (PON) needs

CAMARILLO, Calif., March 8, 2022Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading global supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, today announced its latest PON-X® device, the GN7060 burst mode transimpedance amplifier (TIA) for 25GS-PON and HS-PON (Higher Speed Passive Optical Networks) Optical Line Terminal (OLT) applications.

“As the newest addition to the PON-X portfolio, the GN7060 should be the main choice for OLT module developers,” said Jacqui Adams, senior product line manager for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “This also represents the first step in a series of new 25G and 50G PON products from Semtech designed to meet the convergence time and burst dynamic range requirements of next generation multi-gigabit PON standards.”

The PON-X GN7060 features a high-sensitivity multi-rate 25/12.5/10Gbps burst mode TIA with fast settling time. GN7060 includes several patented innovations with very low input noise and high dynamic range for burst mode applications. The GN7060 can be used with Semtech’s ClearEdge® GN2146 25G EML/CDR with integrated limiting amplifier for evaluation and production of 25G PON OLT modules.

As PON is suited to the growth in high speed, high density and low cost infrastructure, the release of the GN7060 device allows carriers to deploy next generation multi-gigabit PON OLT systems. Moreover, the device will fit future PON services including support for the convergence of PON access and 5G wireless networks, optical LANs, home networking, and next generation streaming—enhancing the consumer experience whilst accelerating the development of the internet.
