In our RF/MMIC business, we were pleased to announce our strategic licensing agreement with IBM to leverage their Silicon Germanium (SiGe) millimeterwave transceiver technology that complements our E-band Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) power amplifier solutions and further drives us into the wireless business. Separately, we also announced the first deployment of one of our optical interconnect chipsets in the consumer electronics market. Those components are now in full production with a leading Japanese manufacturer to enable their high speed data interconnect module used for HDTV and next generation HD information transfer on professional studio cameras. In addition to these new initiatives, we have continued to productize our 40G and 100G drivers, modulators and transimpedance amplifiers offerings and enhance production access with global Tier-1 datacom and telecom customers. We also introduced our first 400G Mach-Zehnder Modulator driver in the quarter. Overall, this quarter we continued to make solid steps to uniquely address the needs of our customers and diversify our business,” concluded Dr. Katz.
