GigOptix Develops Mach-Zehnder Modulator using TFPS Technology

Provider of electronic and electro-optic components, GigOptix has started sampling a thin film polymer on silicon Mach-Zehnder Modulator (MZM) that is utilized for differential quadrature phase shift keying modulation.

The 40G LX8220 modulator has been unveiled by the company, following the successful launch of the LX4801 modulator.

The modulator comes in a compact form factor and consumes less power and is suitable for use in 40G ultra long haul, long-haul, and metro optical transport applications. It uses the company’s disruptive and proprietary TFPS technology to deliver a small footprint, low power modulator for customers.

General Manager of GigOptix-Bothell and VP of the company, Dr. Raluca Dinu stated that the company utilized the MZM production flow to launch the product into the market swiftly. The company is also a provider of electronic devices such as receiver amplifiers, laser drivers, modulator drivers, and polymer electro-optic modulators.
