12 May 2003 Merrimack, NH and Harrisburg, PA Lightwave--Xanoptix, a provider of high-speed optical connection products for next generation data links, and Tyco Electronics, a components manufacturer, today announced a multi-year, multi-million dollar manufacturing services agreement for Xanoptix's XTM series of optical transceiver products. The non-exclusive agreement allows Tyco Electronics to manufacture XTM parallel optics transceiver modules using hybrid integrated circuits (ICs) provided by Xanoptix.

The XTM series is comprised of parallel optics transceiver modules that offer up to 72 channels terminated in a single MT style fiber-optic connector with up to 245 Gbits/sec of aggregate bandwidth. When compared to existing solutions, the XTM series offers improved speed, power consumption, and density. It provides new features such as enhanced lifetime, programmable channel control, and automatic performance adjustments. This family of products addresses a wide range of applications in telecommunications, data communications, computing, and data storage.

The XTM products use semiconductor devices manufactured with Xanoptix's hybrid IC technology. Hybrid ICs are three dimensionally stacked silicon and compound semiconductor chips manufactured in a wafer scale assembly process. The hybrid integrated circuits combine the variety and cost effectiveness of silicon chips with the advanced capabilities of other semiconductor materials, such as high-speed compounds or optical semiconductors.
