"GigOptix's new 100G modulators are based on their proprietary TFPS technology that has never been produced before, and requires an unprecedented level of precision and accuracy. Because of our significant investments in the optical space in the past decade, we have the design, industrialization, test and custom manufacturing expertise to commercialize these revolutionary products," said David Dutkowsky, Executive Vice President of Sanmina-SCI's Communications Networks Division. "These modulators are key to modern optical transport networks."

Based on GigOptix's proprietary Thin Film Polymer on Silicon (TFPS™) technology, the LX8240's ultra-small form factor, low insertion loss and low power consumption make it ideal for use in metro, long-haul and ultra-long haul optical transport applications. The modulator leverages GigOptix's proprietary TFPS technology to bring low power consumption in the smallest footprint modulator available in the market.



"We started working with Sanmina-SCI on our 40G technology and when we saw their design capabilities, and the level of engineering collaboration given to GigOptix, we were convinced they could help us bring our 100G technology to market in an efficient matter that would help us gain traction when engineering slots began to open," said Dr. Raluca Dinu, General Manager and Vice President of Optics at GigOptix. "They have become an extension of our own design team."

Sanmina-SCI's Optical and Microelectronics Division designs, industrializes, tests and manufactures complex optical and RF components and products. With facilities in the Americas and China, the division's global footprint can be customized to provide a secure supply chain that protects companies from component availability disruptions while providing the best total-landed cost solution.

GigOptix and Sanmina-SCI will be showcasing their optical solutions during the OFC/NFOEC conference held in the Los Angeles Convention Center from March 4-8, 2012. Sanmina-SCI will focus on its design, industrialization and custom manufacturing capabilities. Please stop by Sanmina-SCI's booth #819 and GigOptix's booth #1233 to learn more about the latest 100G technology.
