Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
MERRIMACK, N.H., Jan. 20 -- Xanoptix Inc., a developer of 3-D stacked hybrid integrated circuits and a manufacturer of high-speed optical connection products, announced today it has completed the acquisition of AraLight Inc., a manufacturer of high-density opto-electronic components. Xanoptix received all the rights to AraLight's issued, pending and assigned patents and trademarks and product designs.

AraLight, a spinout of Bell Labs, was formed in 2001 and together with Xanoptix commercialized chip hybridization technology for highly dense optical transceivers.

"We are pleased to be able to continue the innovative concepts brought forth by AraLight and combine them with our own to greatly reinforce our leadership position in this exciting breakthrough technology," said Rob Baxter, CEO of Xanoptix.

Xanoptix's core technology is a hybrid-integration process that stacks components vertically rather than laying them side-by-side. This technology is at the heart of Xanoptix's first product, a 72-transceiver parallel optics module called the XTM-72.
