Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) based transmission over passive optical network (PON) is seen as a promising technique for the access network connecting both residential and small business customers. One of the key points for the success of such a proposition is the integration of most of the electrical functions in order to help for a low system cost, a low power consumption, and a good system availability. This paper discusses the architecture of an ATM-PON system by pointing out its main characteristics, then the main features of the developed ASICs in this environment are presented.
