An Optical Network Unit System-on-Chip (ONU SoC) is an integrated circuit that combines several functionalities and components necessary for ONUs in fiber-optic communication networks. ONUs are devices that are used in passive optical networks (PONs) to connect end-users to the network’s central office or point of presence. PONs are commonly utilized for high-speed internet, voice, and video service delivery.
An ONU SoC combines multiple components and functions onto a single chip to simplify the deployment and maintenance of optical network units. The optical transceiver components required to send and receive data over a fiber-optic network are included in an ONU SoC. To ensure reliable data transmission, signal processing components within the ONU SoC handle duties like as error correction, signal equalization, and noise reduction.
The ONU SoC could incorporate components for providing voice, video, and data services. It may enable IP-based services and Quality of Service (QoS) management protocols.
The incorporation of these functions into a single chip simplifies optical network unit design and manufacturing. It may also result in smaller and more cost-effective ONUs while maintaining good performance and dependability.
ONU SoCs are critical in enabling the deployment of broadband services via fiber-optic networks and in meeting the growing demand for high-speed internet and multimedia applications. The ONU SoC could incorporate components for providing voice, video, and data services. Efficient power management capabilities are included into the ONU SoC to reduce power consumption and improve device life.
The Global Optical Network Unit SoC market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Airoha Technology, a leading IC design firm with extensive experience in networks and communication, has announced the world’s first 10G-PON SoC, which employs a heterogeneous computing architecture that combines a 4-core ARM CPU with an 8-core RISC-V multi-function Network Processor Unit (NPU) and a Smart Packet Accelerator (SPA).
This revolutionary new device, designated as AN7581, features an open design and provides maximum flexibility and extension for broadband Optical Network Unit (ONU) and Customer Premise Equipment (CPE).
The NPU used in the AN7581 is based on an open-source architecture, which can assist fixed broadband network operators offload CPU flexibly and free up computing resources for value-added services development.
