PALO ALTO, Calif. -- GigOptix Inc. (OTCBB:GGOX - News), a leading provider of electronic engines for the optically connected digital world, today unveiled a complete family of Transimpedance Amplifier (“TIA”) solutions that enables the company to address all major 10G, 40G and 100G receiver applications; serving all its customers’ high speed TIA needs.

GigOptix’s new TIA family includes:

• GX3101, a high gain limiting TIA for 10.3Gb/s Ethernet whose large dynamic range enables it to support all existing 10G Ethernet optical reaches and thus simplify customers’ logistics by having one part span all reaches.

• GX3110, a linear TIA with AGC for 11.3Gb/s SONET whose total harmonic distortion figure is superior to current market solutions enabling customers to improve product performance.

• GX3200, a limiting TIA for 100GBASE-LR4/ER4 receiver designs whose low power and compact form make it an ideal product for next generation 100G Ethernet solutions.

• GX3220, a balanced linear TIA with AGC whose bandwidth control function enables it to address the emerging 40G DQPSK and 100G DP-QPSK receiver markets.

This new family strengthens GigOptix’s portfolio of TIA solutions adding to the existing products: the GX3440 that addresses the OC-768 40G DPSK market; and the ultra-low power HXR4104 and HXR4112 TIA array products that address Infiniband QDR and emerging 40GBASE-SR4/LR4 and 100G-BASE-SR10 100G Ethernet standards.

"In one fell swoop, we are greatly expanding our addressable market and balancing our strong driver portfolio with an equally attractive and complete set of products for the receive side,” said Julie Tipton, Vice President of Marketing. “This complete portfolio has been driven by our customers seeking better solutions than those currently available in the market. The opportunities are tremendous as there are few companies delivering these challenging designs. We believe these products can be an important engine of growth for us in 2010.”
