Lantiq has announced what it touts as a complete GPON optical network unit (ONU) SoC in a compact 11 x 11mm package. As a result of its small size, high integration and unique power saving features, FALC ON-S claims to be a leading edge solution for Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) modules with fully integrated GPON optical network unit functionality.

According to the company, the chipset enables a simple upgrade to GPON backhauling for a variety of broadband access systems including MDUs and WAN-agnostic gateways.

FALC ON-S's small form factor and very low power consumption that exceeds the European Code of Conduct requirements for years 2013 and 2014 also make it an ideal solution for the emerging small cell wireless architectures, added the company.

FALC ON-S devices are available now for engineering development. Volume shipments will start in 2Q13.
