1. A circuit for monitoring operation of an optoelectronic transceiver, which includes a laser transmitter and a photodiode receiver, said circuit comprising:

  • analog to digital conversion circuitry configured to convert a first analog signal corresponding to a first operating condition of said optoelectronic transceiver into a first digital value, and convert a second analog signal corresponding to a second operating condition of said optoelectronic transceiver into a second digital value;

    memory configured to store the first digital value in a first memory location that is mapped to a predefined and unique first address and to store the second digital value in a second memory location that is mapped to a predefined and unique second address; and

    an interface configured to enable a host external to the optoelectronic transceiver to access the first digital value using the first address and to access the second digital value using the second address.
