Delta Electronics to use GigOptix four-channel VCSEL drivers and receivers

GigOptix, Inc. (OTCQB: GGOX) says it will supply HXT/R5004 four-channel 10-Gbps VSCEL driver and receiver amplifier chipsets to Delta Electronics, Inc. for use in active optical cable (AOC) and pluggable products.

GigOptix, Inc. (OTCQB: GGOX) says it will supply HXT/R5004 four-channel 10-Gbps VSCEL driver and receiver amplifier chipsets to Delta Electronics, Inc. for use in active optical cable (AOC) and pluggable products.

The HXT/R5 chipset family has been designed to support multiple applications ranging from 1 to 10 Gbps per channel and enable designers to optimize the tradeoff between power dissipation and performance of the optical link, GigOptix says. The chipset offers 30% less power dissipation at 10 Gbps than the previous chip generation, 2.0 dB better receiver sensitivity under typical operating conditions, and the addition of advanced monitoring and power reduction functions, GigOptix adds.

“Our partnership with Delta Electronics will bring an entirely new level of data speeds and broadband access – Delta’s implementation of our HXT/R5004 chipsets for their QSFP AOCs and pluggables will enable their customers’ systems with lower power dissipation, simpler design, and better overall performance than any of the competitors,” said Dr. Raluca Dinu, general manager and vice president of the GigOptix Optics Product Line.

“GigOptix components will enable Delta Electronics to quickly get to market with competitive AOCs and pluggable products,” said Ted Kuo, drector, Broadband Module BU, CPBG, Delta Electronics. “We selected GigOptix as our trusted partner because they bring years of experience in the parallel optical market, and our integration of their HXT/R5 solution is only the beginning of what will be a very profitable relationship for both Delta and our customers.”
