THE Micro Linear ML6652 available through Glyn is a low cost, multifunction, multi-standard single-chip media converter (MC).
This highly integrated media converter provides both 10Mbps and 100Mbps signal conversion between both copper universal twisted pair (UTP) and fiber optic Ethernet cabling technologies.
The device is intended to support conversion between multiple industry standards including:
* IEEE 802.3 10Base-T and 10Base-FL
* IEEE 802.3 100Base-TX and 100Base-FX
* EIA/TIA-785 100Base-SX and IEEE802.3 TX/FX
The ML6652 single-chip media converter is the first available on the market to fully auto-negotiate signals over fiber media. Its multi- function architecture and multiple optical interface supports both low cost miniature optical components (i.e. sugar cubes) as well as PECL based PMD optical transceiver modules. It is ideal for new or emerging applications requiring full auto-negotiation over fiber links or 10Mbps signaling over long-wavelength optics.
To support development Glyn has also released the Microlinear ML6652 reference design kit . The ML6652RDK-01 reference design board is a Micro Linear ML6652 10/100 Mbps single-chip media converter (MC) turnkey reference design kit (RDK) that allows customers to easily reproduce and manufacture a “stand-alone” or “multi-port” rack-mount media converter system.
