PON Triplexer Control and Monitoring Circuit

Complete Control, Calibration, and Monitoring Solution for GPON, BPON, and GEPON Transceivers

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The DS1865 controls and monitors all the burst-mode transmitter and video receiver biasing functions for a passive optical network (PON) triplexer. It has an APC loop with tracking-error compensation that provides the reference for the laser driver bias current and a temperature-indexed lookup table (LUT) that controls the modulation current. It continually monitors for high output current, high bias current, and low and high transmit power with its internal fast comparators to ensure that laser shutdown for eye safety requirements are met without adding external components. Six ADC channels monitor VCC, internal temperature, and four external monitor inputs (MON1—MON4) that can be used to meet transmitter and video receive signal monitoring requirements. Two digital-to-analog converter (DAC) outputs are available for biasing the video receiver channel, and five digital I/O pins are present to allow additional monitoring and configuration.
