JUNE 14, 2010 -- GigOptix, Inc. (OTCBB: GGOX) says it has received approximately $2.0 million in orders for delivery in 2010 of its 100G quad-driver for use in 100G DWDM networking systems.

GigOptix says the GX62450 100G dual-polarization quadrature phase-shift keying (DP-QPSK) driver leverages the company’s semiconductor and RF design technology to couple low power dissipation with very high performance in a small form factor. It is designed to be plug-in compatible with industry available 100G multiplexer and Mach-Zehnder modulators.

The GX62450 is the only available four-channel modulator driver fully integrated into one package, GigOptix asserts. It includes a retiming circuit to reduce jitter and a GPPO connectorized form factor.

"We are delighted to be at the forefront of 100G DWDM deployments and be chosen as the supplier of this important component within our customer’s platform due to our differentiated product offering. The demand for 100G solutions has accelerated much faster than the industry originally predicted,” said Padraig O’Mathuna, vice president of marketing at GigOptix. “We aligned our 100G driver development with our customer’s roadmap requirements, and we are pleased to see the culmination of this strategic relationship reach volume shipment orders so rapidly. We believe that we are well positioned as a leader in the 100G segment to take advantage of this upswing and consider the 100G DWDM market as being one of the major growth engines for our company going forward."
