GigOptix completes 10G parallel lineup

MARCH 9, 2009 -- GigOptix 12-channel 10-Gbps Transimpedance Limiting Amplifier (TIA/LA) simplifies system design with its compact size and use of minimal external components, say GigOptix representatives.

MARCH 9, 2009 -- GigOptix Inc. (search Lightwave for GigOptix) today introduced its HXR4112, a 12-channel 10-Gbps Transimpedance Limiting Amplifier (TIA/LA).

The company says the HXR4112, combined with the existing HXT4104/HXT4112/HXT4004/HXT4012 VSCEL drivers and HXR4104 receiver, completes its parallel 10G lineup, offering the greatest number of parallel physical media devices in the marketplace.

The HXR4112 is cost-effective and simplifies system design with its compact size and use of minimal external components, say GigOptix representatives. Its industry-standard 2-wire interface provides full programmability, enabling control of signal peaking, modulation, and average currents in addition to providing access to temperature and output power monitoring on a channel-by-channel basis.

Designed for use in Active Optical Cables (AOC), SNAP12, and QSFP4 optical modules, GigOptix HXT4 VCSEL drivers and receivers serve the fast-growing markets of high-performance computing optical interconnects, switch and router optical backplanes, as well as the new 40G and 100G Ethernet standards.

Samples of the HXR4112 and the complete HT/R4 family are available along with evaluation boards with a selection of PDs and VCSELs for easy evaluation.
