Sat, 04/30/2011 - 9:18am
Pulse introduced a dual central office VDSL2 splitter module. The B8891DVNL combines two central office (CO) splitter modules onto one platform. This configuration increases available printed circuit board space by 40 percent while reducing the component count, according to the company. Designers can increase the number of channels, potentially increasing a 24-channel CO splitter board to a 48-channel board, while maintaining the same PCB dimensions, or can get the same functionality from a much smaller circuit board. 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.
