3.3V E1/T1/J1 Quad Line Interface

3.3V E1/T1/J1 Quad Line Interface Unit for Short-Haul and Long-Haul Applications

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The DS21448 is a quad-port E1 or T1 line interface unit (LIU) for short-haul and long-haul applications. It incorporates four independent transmitters and four independent receivers in a single 144-pin PBGA or 128-pin LQFP package. The transmit drivers generate the necessary G.703 E1 waveshapes in 75Ω or 120Ω applications and the DSX-1 or CSU line build-outs of 0dB, -7.5dB, -15dB, and -22.5dB for T1 applications.
