1.25Gbps 850nm SFP Transceiver
Datasheet Dec. 20, 2003
FTM-8012C-S/FTM-8012C-L is fully compliant with SFP Multi-Source Agreement (MSA). It can
offer maximum flexibility to designers, manufacturers, and operators of Gigabit Ethernet and
Fibre Channel networking equipments.
FTM-8012C-S/FTM-8012C-L can be installed into MSA standard SFP ports at any time even with
the host equipment operating online. This facilitates the rapid configuration of equipment to meet
the user’s needs precisely: reducing inventory costs and network downtime. Compared with
traditional transceivers, the size of the Small Form Factor package enables higher port densities.
FTM-8012C-S/FTM-8012C-L meets the requirements of IEEE 802.3 Gigabit Ethernet standard
and ANSI specifications for Fibre Channel. It is developed with highly reliable 850nm VCSEL.
This transceiver enables cost-effective data transmission over optical fibers at a distance of 275
meters with 62.5/125µm and 550 meters with 50/125µm multimode fiber respectively.
Low Power Dissipation
By utilizing the latest chipset technology, FTM-8012C-S/FTM-8012C-L realizes low power
dissipation. Typical current is 190mA, at +3.3V operation, only 63.3% of the maximum current
allowed by the SFP specification (300mA).
Optional Spring latch for high-density application
FTM-8012C-L features a spring latch that allows user to easily remove the SFP transceiver by
hand even in high-density application.
Excellent EMC/EMI Performance
FTM-8012C-S/FTM-8012C-L patent mechanical design can guarantee excellent EMC/EMI
Detailed Product Information In EEPROM
FTM-8012C-S/FTM-8012C-L features an EEPROM that contains the detailed product information
stored for retrieval by host equipment. This information is accessed via the 2-wire serial CMOS
EEPROM protocol. For further information, please refer to SFP Multi-Source Agreement (MSA).
This product consists of two basic parts: transmitter and receiver. They are illustrated in Figure 1.
