We have developed a new 8-chip, 320 Gchip/s encoder/decoder with eight input/output ports, that can be used in 40-Gb/s PON networks. The device has been to multiplex four asynchronous 40Gb/s users, using DPSK modulation. The transmission over 50 km has been successfully demonstrated for the first time.
