PALO ALTO, USA: GigOptix Inc., a leading supplier of electronic and electro-optic semiconductor products for fiber-optic communications systems, has started high volume production of its portfolio of transimpendance amplifiers (TIA) addressing 10G, 40G and 100G applications.
GigOptix’s TIA family includes:
* GX3101B, a universal limiting TIA whose 20kOhm 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 1Gb/s to 12.5Gb/s. The device simplifies customers’ logistics by enabling one part to address the majority of customers’ limiting TIA requirements.
* GX3220 single channel and GX3222 dual channel 32Gb/s balanced linear TIAs with 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 11.3Gb/s SONET whose low harmonic distortion figure enables customers to improve product performance.
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 Fiberchannel 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.”
According to Ovum’s Q110 Telecom and Datacom forecasts, the annual total available market for this family of products is 13.7 million units in 2010 and it is expected to grow to 38 million units by 2015 with a CAGR of 23 percent.
