The OS8104A is a integrated Network Interface Controller with a full-featured interface to the 25 Mbps MOST® network (MOST25) with an optical physical layer. The OS8104A interfaces directly to a MOST FOT header. This enables MOST data transmission via polymer optical fiber (POF).
All relevant network management on the data link layer level is on-chip, including stream data allocation, synchronization, and network detection. An ultra-low jitter PLL guarantees high quality audio and video transmission and clock recovery over a wide frequency range. Coding is optimized for plastic optical fiber.
The OS8104A works at an ultra-low bit error rate supporting real-time synchronous data traffic of up to 15 stereo channels simultaneously. In addition to the control channel, some of the available bandwidth can be allocated to asynchronous packet data transfer.
Programmable serial and parallel real-time data interfaces with different clock and data modes support various consumer electronic devices such as Codecs, converters and DSPs.
