APRIL 7, 2009 -- GigOptix Inc. (search Lightwave for GigOptix) has announced the availability of the GX3440, a 45-Gbps differential limiting amplifier developed in partnership with what the company described as "a leading Japanese ROSA manufacturer."

GigOptix says it was chosen to design the 45-Gbps amplifier because of its ability to provide high-speed Rx amplifier designs that optimize high sensitivity, low power consumption, wide bandwidth, and output voltage.

The GX3440 operates with DC coupled differential input and 700-mVpp differential output. Applications include:


  • 45-Gbps DPSK receivers
  • 45-Gbps DQPSK receivers
  • high-speed test and measurement.

The GX3440 is currently being sampled by the development partner and will be available to open sampling later in Q2 of 2009.
