GigOptix provides a comprehensive portfolio of high performance, low power solutions for the traditional Optical Networking Telecom and Datacom markets, as well as the emerging Optical Interconnect Datacenter and Consumer markets. GigOptix leverages its legacy in broadband high-speed Microwave RF IC design to create a portfolio of high performance broadband drivers for Mach-Zehnder (MZ) and Electro-Absorption (EA) modulators, low power VCSEL drivers, as well as limiting and linear Transimpedance Amplifiers (TIAs) spanning 10G, 40G and 100G speeds. GigOptix is also first to market with its Thin Film Polymer on Silicon electro-optical polymer modulator technology that promises to improve the performance of optical modulators by significantly reducing power consumption and shrinking the size of the device.
GigOptix ASIC Advantage
GigOptix provides a broad portfolio of MMIC amplifier designs including broadband amplifier MMICs covering DC to 50GHz as well as high-frequency 70GHz and 80GHz amplifier designs for E-band communication systems.
GigOptix high performance amplifier solutions enable transmission systems that couple high-power output with extremely flat gain across the band and are used in military, instrumentation and communication applications. GigOptix also provides a second generation E-band transceiver solution as well as a complete MMIC chipset solution for E-band transceivers. GigOptix has been able to leverage its E-band transceiver system knowledge to implement a highly competitive MMIC chipset for E-band.
