Wurth Electronics Midcom Offers SHDSL Evaluation Kit Featuring SOCRATES™ Chipset

Watertown, USA, 18 November 2015 – In partnership with Teleconnect GmbH, Wurth Electronics Midcom is announcing the availability of the SOCRATES™ Evaluation Kit for SHDSL Ethernet First Mile (EFM) Modems, featuring Lantiq’s SOCRATES™ SHDSL chipset. This demonstration kit provides the ability to test the capabilities of Lantiq’s SOCRATES™ in single-pair SHDSL applications.

The SOCRATES™ Evaluation Board can be used as an EFM modem, an SHDSL EFM module, or a Plug-and-Play Ethernet Extender. This versatile board contains five DIP switches to allow customers to evaluate the SOCRATES™ chipset in multiple modes. Twenty different bitrates, including auto mode, are available for selection. The SOCRATES™ family supports up to 60Mbps throughput over 4 copper wires, using four-pair bonding. Customers using SOCRATES™ in the field have achieved data rates up to 15Mbps per copper pair, or reach beyond 15Kilometers (9.3miles). This kit allows customers to test the SOCRATES™ chipset in a wide variety of new SHDSL applications in telecom, industrial and smart city markets.

“The SHDSL transformer has been customized to be compact (17.7 x 13.4 x 12.7 mm height) and provides very good total harmonic distortion. These transformers meet UL and IEC standards, have a low leakage inductance (less than 35uH) and offers excellent longitudinal balance,” said Swaroop Vaidyanath, Product Marketing Engineer at Wurth Electronics Midcom.

SOCRATES™ is the most innovative SHDSL chipset in the market, with the low power consumption (650mW per line), a small footprint (AFE-DFE-LD in one chip), the best throughput and excellent crosstalk cancellation. This kit provides customers the opportunity to evaluate and incorporate SHDSL into products.
