Pulse Electronics Corporation (NYSE: PULS), a leading provider of electronic components, introduces a family of central office (CO) splitter modules that extend temperature operation from -40°C to +85°C, enabling use in both upper and lower temperature extremes. Pulse’s new BX8841NL SmartER™ CO splitter module complies fully with ETSI TS 101-952-1-1 Option A specification for 600 ohm impedances, for ADSL to VDSL2 bands, and China’s YD/T 1187-2006 specification for 600 ohm impedance for the ADSL2+ band with provision for metering at 12kHz and 16kHz. The BX8841NL, as well as the entire Pulse Electronics family of splitter modules, meets all global operating standards and requirements for operation. The footprint of the BX8841NL is compatible with other SmartER series modules. This enables modules to be interchanged to comply with different global standards without having to redesign the layout of the splitter board. The module is compliant with Broadband Forum TR-127 for VDSL2 applications, ensuring the highest quality delivery of voice, data, and video services (triple play) by maximizing the interoperability of splitters and in-line filters with DSLAMs and modems. The interchangeability of the modules and the benefit of a common footprint allows the TELCO to rollout Fiber to the Curb (FTTC) or Fiber to the Premise (FTTP) with copper on the last mile or few hundred meters to any market worldwide. “The BX8841NL is designed for use on a rack card in a DSLAM or within roadside cabinets (CO in-the-street cabinet) to combine or split the POTS from DSL data,” explained Ronan Kelly, CO and DSL product marketing manager, Pulse Electronics. “Design engineers working on systems with stringent temperature requirements can target a much wider market portfolio.” The RoHS compliant modules come in trays, but other packaging options are available. Price and availability depend on volume. Most Pulse Electronics standard CO splitter modules can be converted to operate over extended temperature upon request.
