October 15, 2004 Cyberjaya, Malaysia -- SiRES Labs Sdn. Bhd. is sampling its SRL3101NS integrated transceiver chip. The 3.15-Gbit/sec device is targeted at very short reach (VSR) module applications. Separate transmit and receive chips are available that operate at the same speeds.

According to Allan Berry, director of marketing at SiRES Labs, the SRL3101NS supports single-channel operation, while the separate transmit and receive chips accommodate four channels each. Both chips and evaluation boards are now available for sampling, he says.

The device integrates the transimpedance amplifier, limiting amplifier, VCSEL driver, and LVDS interface into a single chip. It feature both digital and analog control and monitoring functions and comes in a die measuring 1.6x2.2 mm. The chip consumes 250 mW of power under maximum operating conditions for both transmitter and receiver functions.

The SRL3101NS is designed for use with VCSELs and PIN/APDs in VSR applications such as Gigabit Ethernet, SONET, intra-system, backplanes, SANs, Fibre Channel, and terabit routers and switches.
