GigOptix Inc. now is marketing 40G and 100G bundled solutions that feature a next-generation Thin Film Polymer on Silicon (TFPSTM) Mach-Zehnder Modulator (MZM), the corresponding MZM drivers, Transimpedance Amplifiers (TIA) and their respective bias boards for a number of popular 40G and 100G modulation formats.

The Calif.-based fabless supplier of semiconductor and optical components that enable high-speed information streaming unveiled:

>> The GLX4220, a 40G DQPSK solution comprised of one LX8220 TFPS MZM, one GX62255 MZM driver, and one GX3222B TIA;

>> The GLX4320, a 40G RZ-DQPSK solution comprised of one LX8230 TFPS MZM, one GX62255 MZM driver, one GX6255 clock driver and one GX3222B TIA; and

>> The GLX1420, a 100G DP-QPSK solution comprised of: one LX8240 TFPS MZM, two GX62255 MZM drivers and two GX3222B TIAs.

“GigOptix is uniquely positioned amongst optical subcomponent vendors in that we provide the majority of the high-speed optical-electronic interface devices, such as drivers, TIAs and modulators,” says CTO Andrea Betti-Berutto. “This not only provides us with an in-depth appreciation of our customers’ system level challenges but also enables us to optimize the design and features of our TIAs, drivers and modulators to improve performance and power efficiency as well as reduce customers’ R&D costs and development cycles by providing complete validated bundles for customers to utilize in their designs.”

He continues, “The existing optical subcomponent ecosystem requires customers to source their MZM, driver and TIAs from three different vendors before beginning work on making the devices interoperate in a design. The GLX bundled solutions are an innovative approach to fast tracking this design effort and positions GigOptix well to lead in the increasing integration of optical-electronic functionality in optical telecommunications.”
