GigOptix begins production of 10G, 40G, 100G transimpedance amplifiers

May 25, 2010
MAY 25, 2010 -- GigOptix, Inc. says it has started high-volume production of its portfolio of transimpendance amplifiers (TIA) addressing 10G, 40G, and 100G applications.

MAY 25, 2010 -- GigOptix, Inc. (OTCBB:GGOX) says it has started high-volume production of its portfolio of transimpendance amplifiers (TIA) addressing 10G, 40G, and 100G applications.

The GigOptix TIA family includes:

  • GX3101B, a universal limiting TIA whose 20-kOhm gain enables it to support a range of reaches without requiring a post amplifier and whose bandwidth selection supports a broad range of speeds from 1 to 12.5 Gbps. The device is designed to simplify logistics by enabling one part to address the majority of limiting TIA requirements.
  • GX3220 single-channel and GX3222 dual-channel 32-Gbps balanced linear TIAs with automatic gain control (AGC) whose bandwidth control enables these devices to address both the 40G DQPSK (differential quadrature phase-shift keying) and the 100G coherent DP-QPSK (dual polarization quadrature phase-shift keying) markets
  • GX3122, a dual-channel balanced linear TIA with AGC addressing the 40G DP-QPSK coherent market
  • GX3110, a linear TIA with AGC for 11.3-Gbps SONET whose low harmonic distortion figure enables customers to improve product performance, according to the company.

Padraig O'Mathuna, Vice President of Marketing stated “GigOptix is proud to offer our customers one of the broadest ranges of high-performance TIA solutions ranging from single channel TIAs for Fibre Channel and Ethernet to multichannel TIAs compliant with the emerging 40G and 100G Ethernet and OIF standards. We have built upon our proven design expertise in driver solutions and leveraged our existing supplier relationships with major transceiver and transponder customers to define and develop this comprehensive TIA portfolio. We expect that our new TIA and receiver amplifier portfolio will be a major growth engine for GigOptix’s revenue growth in 2010 and beyond.”

Production samples of all of these devices are available immediately.
