SAN JOSE, Calif. -- GigOptix, Inc. (OTCQB: GGOX), a leading supplier of semiconductor and optical components that enable high-speed information streaming, today announced an agreement with Delta Electronics, Inc. (Delta), wherein GigOptix will supply 4-channel 10Gb/s VSCEL driver and receiver amplifier chipsets to enable Delta’s Active Optical Cables (AOC) and pluggable product offerings.

GigOptix's HXT/R5 chip-set has been designed to support multiple applications ranging from 1Gb/s to 10Gb/s per channel. The advanced feature set of the HXT/R5 family enables customers to optimize the trade-off between power dissipation and performance of the optical link. Significant chip performance improvements have been made, as 30% less power dissipation at 10Gb/s than the previous chip generation, 2.0 dB better receiver sensitivity under typical operating conditions, and addition of advanced monitoring and power reduction functions.

“Our partnership with Delta Electronics will bring an entirely new level of data speeds and broadband access – Delta’s implementation of our HXT/R5004 chipsets for their QSFP AOCs and pluggables will enable their customers’ systems with lower power dissipation, simpler design, and better overall performance than any of the competitors,” said Dr. Raluca Dinu, General Manager and Vice President of the GigOptix Optics Product Line. “This partnership furthers GigOptix leadership in the high-speed information industry, and partnering with an innovative electronics provider like Delta is a big win for the industry.”
