A new device from Freescale Semiconductor is billed as the industry's first SoC solution for broadband passive optical networking (B-PON) The MPC8340BPON integrates Freescale's PowerPC e300 core, a B-PON media access controller (MAC), Ethernet MACs and a clock and data recovery (CDR) unit on the same chip

The MPC8340BPON provides an integrated solution for Internet protocol (IP) services designed to minimise system-level cost through silicon integration and reduction of the number of discrete memories required by optical network termination systems.

Freescale's standards-based approach also supports end-to-end interoperability for applicati
