Available in a small form factor, RJ-45 size, plastic package,
the 1417G4A and 1417H4A are high-performance, cost-effec-
tive transceivers for ATM/SONET/SDH applications at
155 Mbits/s and 622 Mbits/s.
s ATM/SONET/SDH Compliant (ITU-T G.957 Speci-
— IR-1/S1.1, S4.1
s Small form factor, RJ-45 size, multisourced 10-pin
s Requires single 3.3 V power supply
s LC duplex receptacle
s Uncooled 1300 nm laser transmitter with automatic
output power control
s Transmitter disable input
s Wide dynamic range receiver with InGaAs PIN
The 1417G4A and 1417H4A transceivers are high-
speed, cost-effective optical transceivers that are
compliant with the International Telecommunication
Union Telecommunication (ITU-T) G.957 specifica-
tions for use in ATM, SONET, and SDH applications.
The 1417G4A operates at the OC-3/STM-1 rate of
155 Mbits/s, and the 1417H4A operates at the
OC-12/STM-4 rate of 622 Mbits/s. The transceivers
feature Agere Systems’ high-reliability optics and are
packaged in a narrow-width plastic housing with an
LC duplex receptacle. This receptacle fits into an RJ-
45 form factor outline. The 10-pin package and
pinout conform to a multisource transceiver agree-
The transmitter features differential PECL logic level
data inputs and a TTL logic level disable input. The
receiver features differential PECL logic level data
and a PECL logic level signal-detect output for the
1417G4A, and a TTL logic level signal-detect output
for the 1417H4A.

Absolute Maximum Ratings
Stresses in excess of the absolute maximum ratings can cause permanent damage to the device. These are abso-
lute stress ratings only. Functional operation of the device is not implied at these or any other conditions in excess
of those given in the operations sections of the data sheet. Exposure to absolute maximum ratings for extended
periods can adversely affect device reliability.
