Paper Abstract

A new design of fully FDDI-compliant, fiber optic transceiver in a very compact single-piece integrated package is described. It uniquely implements the full proposed ANSI Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI), Physical Medium Dependent (PMD) function. The transceiver functionality includes a completely FDDI compliant duplex optical connector receptacle together with an electronic circuit which provides the ECL-to-light, light-to-ECL, Transmit_Disable and Signal_Detect services required of the PMD.
