Mindspeed Introduces Next Generation Integrated Laser Driver for Small
Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) Optical Transceivers

New Laser Driver Offers Lower Power and Higher Integration in a 4 x 4mm

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Sept. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mindspeed
Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor
solutions for network infrastructure applications, today announced the latest
addition to its laser driver solutions for SFP transceivers targeting
enterprise, telecom and wireless networks. The highly integrated solution
features a low power laser driver integrated with a limiting amplifier, a
real-time performance monitoring controller and on-chip erasable memory,
supporting data rates to 3.1Gbps in a small 4x4mm package.

"In addition to the integrated EEPROM, the M02077 laser driver also
incorporates our proprietary dual-closed-loop EyeMinder™ technology that
delivers real-time monitoring and compensation for laser aging and temperature
effects, making it the ideal choice for new SFP module designs," said Angus
Lai, product marketing director of high-performance analog (HPA) at Mindspeed

"We are very pleased to design in Mindspeed®'s M02077 in several of our
optical transceivers for 1Gbps to 3Gbps applications," said Zhilong Ye,
operations vice president of HG-Genuine. "With its rich feature set and
superior performance, the M02077 will enable us to meet our customer's
requirements and win new designs."

Mindspeed will be highlighting its M02077 family 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
high sensitivity 1Gbps to 3Gbps transimpedance amplifiers (TIA), along with
other members of its family of physical media dependent (PMD) solutions for
1Gbps to 100Gbps applications.

Technical Features

Mindspeed®'s M02077 features a programmable laser driver integrated with a
limiting amplifier. It also includes on-chip electrically erasable
programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) for storing calibration constants and
performance settings, which can support more than one million write cycles. In
addition to operating without external control, the devices can also be
controlled with an external microcontroller.

The M02077 supports 3.1Gbps data rates for both transmitter (Tx) and receiver
(Rx) operations with isolated power pins and independent shutdown. The laser
driver offers the low power industry proven dual-closed-loop EyeMinder
technology. Its limiting amplifier can support better than 6mV input
sensitivity at 3.1Gbps with selectable gain and bandwidth settings.


The M02077 is available now and is production qualified.
