SANTA BARBARA, Calif., May 13 -- Agility Communications Inc., a manufacturer of widely tunable components for metro, switching and long haul markets, announced it was awarded a multimillion-dollar grant to develop a compact, high-performance, indium phosphide photonic integrated circuit that integrates its widely tunable laser, an optical amplifier and a high-speed (10 Gb/s to 40 Gb/s) optical modulator.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) awarded the $2 million grant under its Advanced Technology Program.

Agility said the new 40 Gb/s widely tunable transmitter is expected to dramatically lower the cost for transmitters currently used in Internet data systems.
