GigOptix completes acquisition of Terasquare

GigOptix Inc of San Jose, CA, USA (a fabless supplier of high-speed semiconductor and optical communications components for long-haul and metro telecoms, cloud and data-center connectivity datacoms, point-to-point backhaul wireless applications, and interactive interfaces for consumer electronics links via fiber-optic and wireless networks) has completed its acquisition of Terasquare Co Ltd of Seoul, South Korea, establishing GigOptix-Terasquare-Korea (GTK) Co Ltd.

Terasquare is a fabless supplier of low-power-consumption, CMOS SerDes (serializer/deserializer) high-speed communication interface semiconductors for 100Gbps Ethernet, Fiber Channel, and EDR Infiniband applications. 

The combined product portfolio positions GigOptix as a supplier of 100Gbps+ datacom solutions for Ethernet, Fiber Channel, and Infiniband Data Center connectivity. Terasquare's proven clock data recovery (CDR) technology is being integrated into GigOptix's current High Speed Communications portfolio.

With what is claimed to be an already dominant market share in the current generation of 40Gbps active optical cables (AOCs) and transceivers for data-center connectivity, in the next few months GigOptix will introduce a complete 100Gbps chip-set solution, positioning it for further growth as the industry transitions from 40Gbps to 100Gbps+ speeds. 

GigOptix demonstrated its third-generation 100Gbps short-reach chipset with its new 28Gbps quad CMOS CDR  at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC 2015) in Valencia, Spain (28-30 September), where error-free, three separated channels for 100m, 150m and 300m were demonstrated. Initial revenue from these next-generation products is expected in fiscal first-half 2016.
