GigOptix Expands Global Sales Presence Into South America And Eastern Europe

GigOptix, Inc. (NYSE Amex:GIG), a leading fabless supplier of semiconductor and optical components that enable high-speed information streaming, today announced that it has expanded its global sales presence with customer engagements in both Eastern Europe and South America.

Dr. Avi Katz, Chairman and CEO of GigOptix, and Mr. Andrea Betti-Berutto, CTO of GigOptix, have been invited to participate in a Government-Industry workshop titled “Towards Terabit per Second Optical Networking: International Workshop on Trends in Optical Technologies” in San Paulo, Brazil on May 9-10, 2012, and Mr. Betti-Berutto will present the GigOptix technology approach to the topic on Thursday, May 10 at 2:20 p.m. local time. The participation in this workshop closely complements the growing interest in GigOptix products for 100G and beyond in the region.

Moreover, GigOptix is now shipping production units of the LX8901 and LX8220, a 100G DPSK and a 40G DQPSK TFPS TM Mach Zehnder modulator, respectively, to aerospace and communication customers located 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,” commented Mr. Betti-Berutto, “making it uniquely suited for a number of ultrahigh frequency applications in the field of microwave photonics such as antenna remoting, RF beam steering and ultrahigh frequency signal sampling.”

“Five years ago, GigOptix’s customer base was located in the traditional optical development centers, mainly in North America and Europe,” stated Mr. Padraig OMathuna, GigOptix’s VP of Marketing. “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, as the global economy expands. 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 millimeter wave systems and we look forward to working closely with these highly innovative new companies as they expand into new optical communication markets.”
