Jun 2012
GigOptix Inc. of San Jose, Calif., has secured a $1.8 million purchase order for its 100G Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM) quad-driver, a customized version of the GX62451, for a Tier 1 telecom 100G dense wavelength division multiplexing networking system. The GX62451 100G dual-polarization quadrature phase shift keying (DP-QPSK) driver is a four-channel MZM designed for 100G DP-QPSK long-haul optical transmitters. The device is GPPO-connectorized and is plug-in-compatible with industry-standard 100G MZMs and multiplexors. The systems address the bandwidth demands generated by smartphones and cloud-based services. The order was scheduled for delivery during the first quarter of 2012, with additional orders to follow.

1. The branch of physics that deals with the use of electrical energy to create or manipulate light waves, generally by changing the refractive index of a light-propagating material; 2. Collectively, the devices used to affect the intersection of electrical energy and light. Compare with optoelectronics.
