LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. -- CENiX Inc., a leader in the design andmanufacture of next generation high-speed optoelectronic interfaces, todayintroduced several new innovative, scalable, optical subsystems targeted foruse in 10 and 40 Gbps systems. During the Optical Fiber Conference (OFC)2001, being held in Anaheim, CA, CENiX is showing working demonstrations ofits products, which are ideal for optical networking applications in bothlong haul and metro market segments.The company is introducing three new families of high-speed integratedsolutions designated as UNiPAK.10™, TETRAPAK.10™ and TETRAPAK.40™.

The UNiPAK.10 delivers 10 Gbps bandwidth in a single footprint forintermediate and long-reach DWDM applications. This highly integratedoptoelectronic subsystem includes a 10 Gbps 1.55µm EML optical transmitter,a 10 Gbps PIN or APD optical receiver and a 16-channelSerializer/Deserializer. Standard features include Dither Tone Input, adesigner friendly I2C External Interface and Clock Clean-up for SONET andFEC rates. Sample quantities are available now.

The TETRAPAK.40 delivers a 40 Gbps aggregated bandwidth to systems designerstoday. The compact design of the 15 km TETRAPAK.40 includes four 10 Gbps1.3µm DFB optical transmitters, four 10 Gbps optical receivers and four16-channel Serializers/Deserializers with a built-in reference clockclean-up circuit supporting both SONET and FEC rates. Sample quantities areavailable May, 2001.

CENiX is also introducing the TETRAPAK.10 during OFC. This optical subsystemoffers the highest level of functionality in a single optical subsystem forSONET/FEC implementation. This innovative product solution includes four 2.5Gbps 1.3µm Fabry-Perot or DFB optical transmitters, four 2.5 Gbps PIN or APDoptical receivers and four 4-channel Serializer/Deserializer suitable for upto 60 km transport applications. Sample quantities will be available July,2001.
