GigOptix signs WPG as ASIC product line distributor in the Americas

GigOptix Inc of Palo Alto, CA, USA, which designs modulator drivers, laser drivers and transimpedance amplifier (TIA) ICs based on III-V materials as well as polymer electro-optic modulators for 40–100Gb/s fiber-optic communications systems, has signed WPG Americas Inc (WPGA) of San Jose, CA — said to be one of the top three IC component distributors worldwide — as its sole distributor for application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) sales in the Americas. 

WPGA will distribute the firm’s Standard Cell, Hybrid and Structured ASICs throughout the Americas. GigOptix says that these ASIC products are particularly well suited for military/aerospace, industrial, medical & communication markets and align well with WPGA’s current line-card offerings.

“Our partnership with WPG Americas will further support our growing penetration into North, Central and South America ASIC market,” says Jay de la Barre, VP of sales for GigOptix. “The breadth of experience and customer relationships of WPG Americas will be a great asset to GigOptix,” he adds. 

“GigOptix has a strong portfolio for the mil/aero, industrial, medical & communication markets,” comments Greg Provenzano, North America VP of sales and engineering solutions.
