SAN JOSE, Calif. and SINGAPORE -- Avago Technologies (Nasdaq:AVGO) and Amphenol Corporation (NYSE:APH) today announced a new micro cLGA(R) integrated socket solution for use with Avago's high bandwidth MicroPOD(TM) optical modules for 40G/100G Ethernet and Optical Transport Network (OTN) applications. The new snap-and-go micro cLGA(R) integrated socket is specifically designed to interface with the Avago MicroPOD embedded parallel optics transceiver products. The socket integrates a thermal heat sink with the PCB connector retention mechanism needed with the Avago MicroPOD electrical interface. More importantly, this new integrated socket significantly simplifies the board design and assembly while preserving the industry's smallest socket footprint. Avago will be showcasing a joint demonstration of its new embedded parallel optics transceivers using the new snap-and-go micro cLGA integrated sockets from Amphenol. The demonstration will be in the Avago Booth #1043 at the OFC/NFOEC 2013 exhibition in Anaheim, California, USA from March 19th to 21st. Avago Technologies Pte.
