GigOptix Inc. introduces the GX6255, a high performance, low power, compact SMT Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM) said to be capable of driving 8Vpp at up to 32Gb/s, targeted at 40G RZ-DQPSK and 100G DP-QPSK metro and long haul transponders.

The GX6255 typically dissipates about 1.6W power with 7.5Vpp output. The device is designed to be fully compliant with industry standard single drive 40G RZ-DQPSK and 100G DP-QPSK modulators and meets all the telecom qualification spec demands. "The new driver joins our large driver portfolio, which in combination with our comprehensive TFPST modulator offering and the variety of the dual channel transimpedance amplifiers, enable GigOptix to offer our customers the most comprehensive and richest selection of 40G and 100G component solutions in the market," stated Raluca Dinu, GM and VP of the optics product line at GigOptix.

The GX6255 is now ramping to mass production with orders from Asian Tier-1 telecom customers.
