MAY 3, 2010 -- GigOptix, Inc. (OTCBB:GGOX) has announced that its GX3240, a 40G RZ DQPSK receiver amplifier, has entered mass production and is shipping in volume to a Tier 1 telecom OEM. The company did not identify its customer.

The GX3240 is designed to be a high-gain, broad-bandwidth, low-power differential amplifier in a 3x3-mm QFN form factor that is capable of directly driving a 40G demultiplexer. The product was developed through close collaboration with a Tier 1 telecom OEM consistent with GigOptix’s strategy of partnering with leading customers to define and drive commercialization.

Andrea Betti-Berutto, CTO of GigOptix stated, "The GX3240 concept is a very challenging design and significantly strengthens GigOptix’s existing 40G receiver amplifier portfolio. Paralleling our previously announced 40G DPSK receiver amplifier and 100G DP-QPSK driver developments [see "GigOptix ships 100G DP-QPSK driver to Tier 1 telecom OEM"], we aligned this product’s development with a Tier 1 customer’s requirements. This enabled us to design the right device for the market, and we are now delighted to deliver on our commitment to provide the high-performance GX3240 differential amplifier in volume for our customers’ 40G RZ DQPSK platforms."

Two GX3240s are used in each 40G RZ DQPSK transponder.
