DALLAS Semiconductor, represented by Arrow Electronics , has introduced the DS21448, a fully integrated, low-cost, four-channel line interface unit (LIU).
Combining T1/J1 and E1 with long and short haul, the DS21448 offers the flexibility of designing a single board with universal functionality.
The DS21448 has state-of-the-art receiver and transmitter circuitry. When configured for long haul, the receiver uses gain and equalisation to provide 43dB (E1 mode) and 36dB (T1 mode) sensitivity.
It also allows user-defined, receive-side termination for 75 ohms, 100 ohms, or 120 ohms for T1 or E1 operation.
The transmitter drives waveforms with template compliance and includes line build-out control and a pattern generator. The DS21448 also includes an AMI/HDB3/B8ZS generator/detector; 8-bit parallel, serial, and hardware data interfaces; and diagnostic capabilities such as loopbacks, PRBS pattern generator/detector, loss-of-signal indicator, and JTAG boundary scan architecture.
The DS21448 is a lower cost-per-port alternative and direct replacement for the 3.3V DS21Q348. It is available in 144-pin BGA and 128-pin LQFP packages in commercial (0°C to 70°C) and industrial (-45°C to +85°C) temperature ranges.
Evaluation kits are also available.
