SAN JOSE, Calif., March 19 — GigOptix, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced semiconductor and optical communications components, today announced that it will be showcasing its 100Gbps networking leadership at the upcoming OFC/NFOEC show with live demonstrations of its 100Gbps quad driver and TFPS modulator bundle and an Infiniband EDR chipset at GigOptix booth #3113, and several new product introductions.
At OFC/NFOEC booth #3113, GigOptix will showcase the following products and bundled solutions:
About the Linear Driver and Polymer Modulator Bundle
GigOptix will demonstrate GLX1411 bundle solution reference system containing a GX62455 quad MZM driver and a LX8240 TFPS DP-QPSK modulator. The demonstration setup allows for eye diagram display on a sampling scope or for X and Y polarization observation via optical constellation analyzer. Josh Nakaska, Director of Marketing of the High-Speed Communications division stated, “Customer demand for the bundle solution has been very strong and we have received excellent customer feedback to date. The GX62455 and LX8240 bundled demonstration builds on our experience in dual channel drivers and TFPS polymer modulator technology for 100Gbps DP-QPSK. With the GLX1411, GigOptix continues to lead 100Gbps high-speed communications system deployments.”
Recently GigOptix has announced its partnership with Fraunhofer HHI to jointly develop a full production-worthy reference platform 100Gbps TOSA, based on the GigOptix LX8240 TFPS DP-QPSK modulator chip, the Fraunhofer HHI Tunable Laser chip and the GigOptix GX62455 driver.
GigOptix is now shipping the GLX1411 reference systems to customers for evaluation of the bundled TFPS modulator chip and the 100Gbps driver.
About the HXT6204/HXR6204 Chipset
GigOptix will have on display a second generation 28Gbps quad channel silicon chipset, VCSEL driver and TIA. The HXT6204 is a 4x28Gbps transmitter specifically designed for short reach VCSEL-based AOCs, and the HXR6204 is a 4x28Gbps receiver to complete the link with customer photo detectors. The demonstration setup includes ribbon fiber pig-tailing to complete the optical link between transmit and receive evaluation boards. “The HXT6204 and HXR6204 transmitter and receiver chipset opens the door for high-data rate 4-channel 28Gbps VCSEL applications. The HXT/R6204 chipset leverages on our previously demonstrated 25Gbps HXT5204 and HXR5204 devices with performance improvements. The HXT6204 and HXR6204 enable Infiniband EDR AOC links and can also be used in HPC VSR links,” said Martin Bossard, GigOptix's Director of Engineering and General Manager for GigOptix-Helix AG.
The 4-channel HXT6204 and HXR6204 devices, as well as the newly released 12-channel HXT6212 and HXR6212 devices based on the similar silicon platform, are also now available for progressive sampling and evaluation.
