BOULDER, Colo. -- Picolight today announced that the company has entered volume production for three optical subsystem products. These transceiver subsystems target the fast-growing market segments for short-reach (10-meter to 10-kilometer) optical-networking connections, including optical switch interconnect, optical enterprise and storage area networks (SANs), and optical metro/access networks. A pioneer in vertical cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL)-based transceivers, Picolight is now shipping in excess of 100,000 units annually of its flagship transceivers, and will move its fourth transceiver into volume production during the second calendar quarter of this year.

"Our foundation in VCSEL optics has allowed Picolight to focus on the highest growth optical subsystem market. With multiple products established, we are poised for very rapid growth throughout the remainder of 2001 and into 2002," said Stan Swirhun, CEO and president of Picolight. "We are uniquely positioned to supply optoelectronic subsystems in volume for switch interconnect, enterprise and storage area networks and metropolitan/wide area networks delivering high-speed data transmission services."
