This paper describes a line termination circuit for burst-mode bidirectional digital subscriber loop transmission. It incorporates the most advanced LSI technology to obtain compactness, low cost, and high reliability. Two CMOS LSI's have been developed; one is a line termination LSI (LT) and another is a circuit termination LSI (CT). LT LSI adopts a novelRCactive filter-type equalizer and decision feedback bridged tap equalizer suitable for incorporation in LSI and provides high performance. By using these LSI's, a line termination circuit realizes a reach of over 5 km at 88 kbit/s bidirectional digital transmission. This paper describes each LSI and shows total performance characteristics in detail.
