Pulse Electronics Corp. has introduced the BX4285LNL and BX4285LNLT VDSL vectoring transformers. These transformers can be used in both VDSL2 vectoring and non-vectoring configurations as Class H line drivers to deliver high bandwidth over existing copper transmission lines. The Pulse Electronics transformers can be used with Broadcom’s BCM65x00 chipset family that integrates vectoring technology. Pulse Electronics’ transformers provideimproved longitudinal balance and total harmonic distortion on an extremely compact platform.
VDSL2 has the potential to reach 100 Mbps, but noise among the lines in a cable impedes performance. VDSL2 vectoring cuts out all of the noise, or interference, among the VDSL2 lines in a bundle, so every line within a bundle can operate at peak performance, as if no other VDSL2 lines are present. This results in improved performance and enables copper to reach its full potential.
“Where the copper infrastructure is already in place, it makes sense to adopt VDSL2 vectoring because it makes it possible to achieve download rates of up to 100 Mbps and possibly beyond,” said Ronan Kelly, Pulse Electronics broadband product manager. “Pulse transformers, in conjunction with the Broadcom chipset, produce the high-speed data rates that are needed for applications such as HD video, gaming, multimedia services, cloud computing, video conferencing, electronic services like healthcare and education, and other consumer, business, and government services that require high bandwidth.”
Pulse Electronics’ BX4285LNL transformer is packaged in trays while the BX4285LNLT is packaged in tape and reel. They are available now with a lead-time of 8 weeks. More information can be found on datasheet T696 located on the Pulse website or visit the Pulse website.
