The VSC8185 16:1 multiplexer and VSC8184 1:16 demultiplexer provide a feature-rich chipset that operates from 11.5 to 12.5 Gbytes/sec to support high-gain Forward Error Correction (FEC) operations. The VSC8184 and VSC8185 enable telecommunication equipment providers to serialize and de-serialize high-gain FEC data streams for ultra-long haul DWDM applications. These devices use a single 3.3V power supply and dissipate less than 3.5W of power for the total chipset.
