Melexis Develops 150 Mbps Fiber Optic Transceiver
Single package fiber transceiver.
Concord, NH — Melexis has developed the MLX75605, a single package solution for a 150 Mbps Fiber Optic Transceiver dedicated to the newly introduced MOST150 physical layer. The MLX75605 is compliant with the 150 Mbps MOST physical layer and comes in a 24 pin SOIC package compatible with lead-free SMD processes. The transceiver includes integrated ferrule receptacles for both receiver and transmitter pigtails with high optical coupling efficiency.

MLX75605 embeds a 650nm light source, a 150 Mbps Driver IC and a 150 Mbps monolithic receiver IC. The LED driver IC includes on-chip calibration circuitry, which allows trimming the transmitter light output. In this way the light output is within a narrow range over the entire temperature range of -40 to +95°C, as required for automotive infotainment networks.

The 150 Mbps receiver part consists of a PIN Photo Diode, TIA and End Amplifiers integrated into one single die. This monolithic receiver IC enables immunity against electromagnetic disturbances. The device is packaged using innovative technology developed for Automotive Optoelectronic ICs. This 24-pin SOIC package can be handled by conventional SMD pick-and-place machines and is fully compliant with lead-free reflow SMD soldering processes.

The monolithic Receiver IC (MLX75603) as well as the (RC) LED driver IC (MLX75604) are also available in die form.
