GigOptix Provides Broadest Solution Portfolio for 100G DWDM Optical Communications.

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- GigOptix, Inc. (OTCBB:GGOX), a leading supplier of high performance electronic and electro-optic components that enable next generation 40G and 100G optical networks, announced that it provides the broadest product portfolio of driver and Transimpedance Amplifier (TIA) solutions shipping into 100G systems based on the Optical Interconnect Forum's (OIF) recommended Dual Polarity Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (DP-QPSK) modulation scheme.

100G DP-QPSK optical communication systems are increasingly being used in metro and long haul Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) optical communication networks to address the increasing bandwidth demanded by such applications as On-Demand Video and Smartphones. Unlike previous optical modulation schemes that require four transmitter and receiver amplifier pairs, one for each data channel, 100G DP-QPSK uses four streams of up to 32Gb/s of data to form a single 100Gb/s optical data stream.

"GigOptix is very proud to offer the broadest portfolio of industry proven 100G solutions," commented Padraig O'Mathuna, GigOptix's Vice President of Marketing. "Our customers appreciate being able to utilize a single supplier to meet all of their 100G system requirements. GigOptix provides TIAs as well as single and quad channel drivers that are deployed in volume in 100G DP-QPSK systems in the field and also has an extensive roadmap for more cost competitive second generation 100G solutions. Moreover, in addition to providing a full portfolio of transmitter and receiver amplifiers, we also plan to sample a 100G DP-QPSK MZM in the second half of 2011 using our proprietary Thin Film Polymer on Silicon (TFPS[TM]) technology. This technology will offer customers a smaller and lower power solution to currently available 100G DP-QPSK devices. It also enables GigOptix to provide a complete bundled solution that includes a driver, MZM and TIA to our 100G customers."

GigOptix's 100G DP-QPSK solution portfolio provides customers with a complete array of solutions to implement in their 100G communication system. GigOptix provides customers with single and dual channel bandwidth-tunable receiver TIAs that offer industry leading low power performance with excellent low noise operation to ensure excellent receiver sensitivity. GigOptix also provides single and quad channel 32Gb/s transmit amplifiers that have proven interoperability with leading 100G Mach-Zehnder Modulators (MZM) in field deployed 100G systems. GigOptix's driver portfolio offers excellent performance and signal integrity coupled with low power consumption in a small form factor. The quad channel driver is contained within a high performance GPPO connectorized module that enables optimum performance in an extremely compact form factor, while the single and dual channel devices enable more cost competitive second generation solutions.
