    Press Release
    GigOptix Now Shipping Production Samples of LX8901 100Gbps TFPS Modulator
    SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 19, 2012-- GigOptix, Inc. (OTCQX: GGOX), a leading fabless supplier of semiconductor and optical components that enable high speed end to end information streaming over the network today announced the shipment of production 100Gbps serial Mach-Zehnder Modulators (MZM) to Mil/Aero European customers.

    The LX8901 is a serial 100Gbps DPSK (Differential Phase Shift Keying) MZM implemented using GigOptix's proprietary Thin Film Polymer on Silicon (TFPSTM) technology. The device is unique in that it provides optical bandwidth of over 65GHz with low drive voltage. The LX8901 enables a number of ultrahigh frequency applications in the field of microwave photonics such as antenna remoting, RF beam steering, phased array radar, ultrahigh frequency signal sampling and mixing that are not viable using other modulator technologies, such as Indium Phosphide and Lithium Niobate. The LX8901's compact form factor and large bandwidth further enables systems solutions required in demanding aerospace and other military applications.

    Eric Miller, General Manager of GigOptix Bothell stated, "We are delighted to bring yet another TFPS modulator to production to serve the Mil/Aero markets. Moreover, with our recent shipments we are seeing interest for our devices from new markets, especially in microwave photonics and instrumentation and measurement, since the device's high bandwidth can enable complex high fidelity signal generation at ultra-high speeds."

    Antenna Remoting – Antennas may be placed 40 km from ground stations aiding in location logistics as well as security as active antenna elements radiate and may be targeted for attack.

    RF Beam Steering:
    The use of adaptive array antennas for cellular base station application has recently become an
    active area of research and development [1{3]. Base station antennas normally radiate omni-
    directionally or in broad sectors, in which the most of the power is radiated in other directions
    than toward the user. This causes waste of power and interference for other users. Therefore new
    versions of base station antennas are now being made to overcome the problem by using antennas
    that have narrow steerable beams. These can give large increment in capacity, and the possibility
    of tracking mobile phones or vehicles
