6x10G/40G Any-Client OTN Framer/Mapper/PHY with FEC/EFEC(G.975-1 I.4)/UFEC(G.975-1 I.7)
PQx is the industry's highest-density, lowest-power 10G/40G optical transport network (OTN) framer/PHY system-on-a-chip (SoC) for Carrier Ethernet router and WDM transport systems. With 60 Gigabits of total capacity, the PQx is a key enabler for telecom and datacom customers to deploy next-generation 100G systems and cloud computing applications.
PQx is AppliedMicro's third generation of OTN framer device with integrated high-speed PHYs and fractional-N clock synthesizers. Building on the success of the company's Rubicon, Pemaquid, and Yahara devices, PQx provides the industry's highest I/O bandwidth at 240 Gbps at high-performance and maintains compliance to various standards such as SONET/SDH, XFP/SFP+, and SFI5.1/CFP.
