The TC155/311 bidirectional converter conditions and converts 155.52-Mbit/sec non-return-to-zero-over-fiber signals to 311-Mbit/sec cmi-over-copper signals for telecommunications and Sonet applications. It interfaces, regenerates, performs a protocol conversion, and clocks the optical and electrical signals and can be used in singlemode and multimode fiber applications. Its Copperhead transceiver corrects for the distortion of high-frequency input signals received over coaxial cable. Priced at $1187 in 100-piece quantities, the converter can be operated from a 5 or 12V power supply.
