Next-Generation Burst-Mode Transimpedance Amplifier (TIA)

New GPON Burst-Mode TIA Enables Longer Reach and Higher Split Ratio at Lower
Power Than Existing Solutions

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Sept. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mindspeed
Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor
solutions for network infrastructure applications, has introduced the
M02036-13, a next-generation, high-performance GPON burst-mode TIA targeted
for GPON optical line termination (OLT) equipment based on ITU-T G.984.2 OLT
Class C+ specifications.

"Mindspeed offers the industry's most comprehensive optical physical media
device (PMD) portfolio for fiber-access networks," said Hasnain Bajwa, senior
vice president and general manager, high-performance analog (HPA), at
Mindspeed. "We continue to bring innovative solutions to market that help

performance OLT transceivers to our customers, further accelerating the
deployment of GPON technology to residences and businesses worldwide."

Mindspeed will be highlighting its M02036-13 burst-mode TIA for GPON OLT Class
C+ applications at the 15^th Annual China International Optoelectronic Expo
(CIOE), September 4-7, 2013, in Hall 1, Booth#1A76 at the Shenzhen Convention
and Exhibition Center in Shenzhen, China. The company will also be showcasing
its latest generation companion burst-mode laser drivers, along with other
members of its family of physical media dependent (PMD) solutions for GEPON,
GPON, XG-PON1 and 10G-EPON applications.

Technical Details

The new Mindspeed M02036-13 GPON burst-mode TIAs offer superior optical
sensitivity of -33dBm to meet or exceed ITU-T G.984.2 Class C+ and FSAN Class
C+ specifications. The TIA features excellent overload performance with wide
dynamic range of greater than 25dBm and fast output settling time. The TIA
outputs can be used in either single-ended or differential configurations with
internal terminations for design simplicity.
