GigOptix expands global sales presence into South America and Eastern Europe

GigOptix Inc of San Jose, CA, USA (which supplies semiconductor and optical components for high-speed information streaming) says it has expanded its global sales presence with customer engagements in both Eastern Europe and South America.

Chairman & CEO Dr Avi Katz and chief technology officer Andrea Betti-Berutto have been invited to participate in the Government-Industry workshop ‘Towards Terabit per Second Optical Networking: International Workshop on Trends in Optical Technologies’ in San Paulo, Brazil on 9-10 May, and Betti-Berutto will present the GigOptix technology approach to the topic on Thursday 10 May at 2:20pm local time. GigOptix says that its participation in the workshop closely complements the growing interest in its products for 100G and beyond in the region.

Also, GigOptix is now shipping production units of its LX8901 and LX8220, a 100G DPSK and a 40G DQPSK Thin Film Polymer on Silicon (TFPS) Mach-Zehnder modulator, respectively, to aerospace and communication customers in Eastern Europe. “The LX8901 is unique in that it provides a low drive voltage over a very wide optical bandwidth of up to 65GHz, making it uniquely suited for a number of ultra-high-frequency applications in the field of microwave photonics, such as antenna remoting, RF beam steering and ultra-high-frequency signal sampling,” says Betti-Berutto.

“Five years ago, GigOptix’s customer base was located in the traditional optical development centers, mainly in North America and Europe,” notes VP of marketing Padraig OMathuna. “It is exciting to see the growth in optical communication development as we have extended our reach to the Japanese and Chinese markets over the last couple of years, and now spreading into the new fast-growing regions,” he adds. “GigOptix is dedicated to supporting the growth of high-speed end-to-end information streaming targeting telecom and datacom optical communications, military, aerospace, ASIC and RF microwave and millimetre-wave systems, and we look forward to working closely with these highly innovative new companies as they expand into new optical communication markets.”
