GigOptix Demonstrates 100G/200G DP-16QAM System Featuring Picometrix Receiver, At ECOC

GigOptix, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GIG), a leading supplier of semiconductor and optical components that enable high-speed information streaming, is showcasing a full 100G/200G DP-16QAM System using the GigOptix GX62472 100G driver and the CR-100B, a second generation 25G coherent Receiver courtesy of Picometrix, an Advanced Photonix Company, at the 38 th European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communications (ECOC) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The CR-100B receiver from Picometrix houses the GigOptix GX3222B, a dual channel 32Gbaud linear Transimpedance Amplifier (TIA) designed for use in 100G DWDM optical receivers. This TIA is a high performance, silicon germanium, TIA with adjustable bandwidth control that enables its use in receiver modules in a number of fiber optic transmission systems such as current generation 100G DP‐QPSK optical systems in addition to future 400G optical systems.

Key features of the GX3222B include:

  • Adjustable frequency range supporting 28Gbaud up to 32Gbaud
  • Differential gain up to 5000 Ω
  • 660 mW low power consumption
  • Linear gain with over 30dB of dynamic range

“Working closely with GigOptix on implementing the GX3222B into our CR-100B receiver, and utilizing it in a 200Gbps DP-16QAM demonstration, lets us successfully showcase the broad applicability of our leading edge 100G coherent receivers,” stated Rob Risser, COO of Advanced Photonix Company. “GigOptix and Picometrix have had a long-standing, fruitful relationship, and as a company, we are proud to be able to present the results of our collaborations during ECOC this year.”

“Demonstrating a 100G/200G DP-16QAM system is an immense achievement for all parties involved; GigOptix, CPqD, and Picometrix,” commented Dr. Raluca Dinu, Vice President and General Manager of the GigOptix Optical Product Line. “With the proven technology that this demonstration presents to the market, it stabilizes a vision for future 400G applications. This system represents the next steps for optical communications and it is exciting to see multiple collaborators come together to successfully showcase the future.”
