Sanmina-SCI & GigOptix in manufacturing deal

Sanmina-SCI Corporation and GigOptix have announced a manufacturing partnership to produce GigOptix' high bandwidth polymer modulator designed for 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s long-haul optical transponders.
The first product for the partnership to be brought to production is the GigOptix LX8401, a 40Gb/s DPSK Mach-Zehnder modulator that will be the industry's first EO polymer modulator. Planned to be fully qualified for volume production in the fourth quarter of 2010, it will offer price and specification advantages over currently available products. Benefits include its low power consumption and small size.

GigOptix, in partnership with Sanmina-SCI, intends to bring a family of modulators to production to address the various modulation formats – DPSK, DQPSK and DP-QPSK covering 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s for telecom and RF communication market applications. The polymer modulator chips, based on GigOpitx' proprietary and protected technology, are designed, developed and produced by GigOptix while the optical packaging is jointly developed and then manufactured by Sanmina-SCI.
