re: ClariPhy Cleans Up 10-Gig ....not too exciting. A bunch of digital Silicon processing algorithms is not optics. But it does enable some more optics.

I wish the communications market for optics/components would see some margins and growth again so the interesting photonics R&D that ran for the hills (of photon counters etc.) would get interested. Optical signal processing should really be more involved in things like 100GE. But optical communications type RD budgets (if any?!) won't support that. Maybe as mixed signal guys push way past digital signaling limits, they will look at the analog domain and realize optical guys can do something more here as parallel light is more simultaneous than parallel bits. But when?

re: ClariPhy Cleans Up 10-Gig "I'm not looking forward to that, honestly," he says, noting he's worried less about whether ClariPhy can get money than what kind of valuation it will receive.

I wouldn't worry about that at all... You have insignificant revenues. Therefore: $0.00.

BTW, How are they counting the funding (to $40M)? They look like they've sold only $22M in stock as of December. And $50K in legal fees? For copy-and-paste documents? Somebody in their org needs to kick the overpriced lawyers in the nuts repeatedly until the prices get contemporary.
