igOptix, Inc. (OTCBB:GGOX) has partnered

with Sanmina-SCI (NASDAQ: SANM) to

contract manufacture its proprietary polymer based modulator for all 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s modulation formats. Over the last year, since the acquisition of Lumera by GigOptix, the company’s Bothell, Washington based LX Product Line group has made unparalleled developments in polymer material ther- mal-related electro-optical and mechanical stability; enabling the first-ever achievement of the required 85C, 25 years electro-optical stability of the polymer- coated silicon modulator chip. The design rules that were deployed allow the smallest overall modulator foot print for all speeds and formats.

The GigOptix LX modulators use standard semicon- ductor production flows and industry standard mo- dulator package assembly technology, allowing for a smooth transfer of the product to a mass production

partner like Sanmina-SCI. The company announced that the first Telcordia qualified volume production of 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s DPSK modulators, will be available in the fourth quarter of 2010. Engineering samples of 40Gb/s DQPSK and 100Gb/s DP-QPSK modulators will be also be available in the fourth quarter of 2010.
