Avago And Amphenol Jointly Developed New Micro LGA Integrated Socket Solution For 40G/100G Ethernet/OTN Applications

SAN JOSE, Calif. and SINGAPORE, March 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avago Technologies (Nasdaq:AVGO) and Amphenol Corporation (NYSE:APH) today announced a new micro cLGA® integrated socket solution for use with Avago's high bandwidth MicroPOD TM optical modules for 40G/100G Ethernet and Optical Transport Network (OTN) applications.

The new snap-and-go micro cLGA® integrated socket is specifically designed to interface with the Avago MicroPOD embedded parallel optics transceiver products. The socket integrates a thermal heat sink with the PCB connector retention mechanism needed with the Avago MicroPOD electrical interface. More importantly, this new integrated socket significantly simplifies the board design and assembly while preserving the industry's smallest socket footprint.

Avago will be showcasing a joint demonstration of its new embedded parallel optics transceivers using the new snap-and-go micro cLGA integrated sockets from Amphenol. The demonstration will be in the Avago Booth #1043 at the OFC/NFOEC 2013 exhibition in Anaheim, California, USA from March 19 th to 21 st.

"Avago Technologies is excited to have partnered with Amphenol InterCon Systems to provide this value-added integrated socket solution for use with the Avago MicroPOD optical modules," said Philip Gadd, vice president and general manager of the Fiber Optics Product Division at Avago. "We believe this simple integrated socket solution will enable system companies to easily design in MicroPOD embedded optics solutions, thereby enabling greater system bandwidth, higher port density, better system performance and lower total system costs."

"This collaboration with Avago has been a natural extension of our cLGA technology: a high density, low profile design that covers every aspect of the required mechanical specification," said Daniel Barrett, General Manager, Amphenol InterCon Systems & Mezzanine Products ( "The snap on heat sink and compression spring is an innovation that really makes this easy to use. We are excited to be a participant and an enabler for Avago's technology."
