April 28, 2011 — Pulse Electronics Corporation (NYSE: PULS), a leading provider of electronic components, introduces the first dual central office VDSL2 splitter module. The B8891DVNL combines two central office (CO) splitter modules onto one platform. This compact configuration increases available printed circuit board space by 40% while reducing the component count, resulting in new possibilities for high density board applications. Designers can increase the number of channels, potentially increasing a 24 channel CO splitter board to a 48 channel board, while maintaining the same printed circuit board dimensions, or can get the same functionality from a much smaller circuit board.
“This dual central office splitter module is the first of its kind in our product range and to the market globally,” said Ronan Kelly, product marketing engineer for Pulse Electronics. “Due to its compact size, this product offers the advantage of potentially doubling the number of channels on a central office splitter board without the customer having to change the physical form factor of the board. The dual nature of the B8891DVNL enables it to be used in high density central office VDSL2 applications. This product uses Pulse’s patented technology that allows for better performance, increased compactness, and high quality construction.”
Pulse Electronics’ dual CO splitter module is used on a rack card in a DSLAM or within roadside cabinets to combine or split the POTS (plain old telephone service) from DSL (digital subscriber line) data. The module is compliant to China MII YD/T 1187-2006 ADSL2+ and VDSL2 600 ohm applications. It is RoHS-6 compliant and TR-127 compliant for ADSL2 and VDSL2 applications. TR-127 is a technical report developed by the Broadband Forum to ensure the highest quality delivery of voice, data, and video services (triple play) by maximizing the interoperability of splitters and in-line filters with DSLAMs and modems.
The dual splitter modules are supplied in trays, but other packaging options are available. Price and availability depend on volume. Samples and prices are available upon request.
