Agilent acquires Centellax T&M business
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) and Centellax Inc. have signed a definitive agreement for Agilent to acquire the assets of Centellax’s test and measurement business. The acquisition, subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to be completed in about two weeks. Financial details were not disclosed.Founded in 2001, Centellax designs and manufactures equipment used for testing high-speed digital communication systems and components. This test equipment includes bit-error ratio testers, pattern generators, clock synthesizers, signal-integrity studio software, and test accessories. (The company also manufactures a variety of electronic components for high-speed optical communications applications; this business is not part of the transaction). Agilent has complementary expertise and technology. The pair says the acquisition will help customers to obtain comprehensive insight into their high-speed devices by providing a full spectrum of test offerings.Agilent says that the acquisition augments its current position and ongoing investments by covering all requirements in digital I/O and optical transceiver test, from deep characterization in R&D to cost-effective test in manufacturing up to 32G and beyond. “Adding Centellax’s products and technology enables us to address the complete life-cycle needs of our customers,” said Juergen Beck, general manager of Agilent’s digital and photonic test division.“We are very pleased by the opportunity this transaction represents for Centellax T&M’s customers and employees,” said Julio Perdomo, Centellax CEO. “We are proud of the team and the product line we have designed, built and brought to market. Looking into the future, I am confident that under Agilent’s leadership this business unit will thrive.”
Southern Photonics launches optical modulation analyzer aimed at R&D
Southern Photonics says the new IQScope-30G is an economical option for optical modulation analysis (OMA) in the research and development environment. With 30 GHz of bandwidth, the IQScope-30G is ideally suited to measure 100-Gbps signals, the company adds.The IQscope-30G is the companion to the higher-speed IQScope, introduced last year (see “Southern Photonics launches optical modulation analyzer based on equivalent-time oscilloscopes”). Both are separate units that must be paired with an equivalent-time oscilloscope – an approach that’s gaining popularity in the industry (see “Tektronix enhances optical modulation analysis with digital oscilloscopes.”)Priced at under $50,000, the IQScope-30G takes advantage of the high bandwidth and low noise of equivalent-time oscilloscopes, enabling accurate transmitter characterization with up to 2000 sample points per baud.Only a handful of large telecommunications companies and research laboratories have been able to afford the $250,000 to $800,000 price tag that accompanies the OMA products from other suppliers, according to Southern Photonics. The New Zealand-based company says the new addition to its product range will make OMA more widely available to researchers, and will increase the company’s market presence in the coherent modulation test and measurement field.Southern Photonics felt it was important to create a new offering to suit the R&D market, says Iannick Monfils, principal engineer at Southern Photonics. “We recognized that, as a company, we are in an ideal position when we can provide a cost-effective solution whilst maintaining the flexibility and bandwidth necessary for 100-Gbps systems,” he said. “We listen to our customers when they asked for an affordable OMA solution, whilst not compromising on the same quality and reliability that Southern Photonics has become well known for.”The IQScope-30G will be available at a special time-limited introductory price from May through to September.
GigOptix Expands Global Sales Presence Into South America and Eastern Europe
GigOptix, Inc. (NYSE Amex:GIG), a leading fabless supplier of semiconductor and optical components that enable high-speed information streaming, today announced that it has expanded its global sales presence with customer engagements in both Eastern Europe and South America.Dr. Avi Katz, Chairman and CEO of GigOptix, and Mr. Andrea Betti-Berutto, CTO of GigOptix, have been invited to participate in a Government-Industry workshop titled "Towards Terabit per Second Optical Networking: International Workshop on Trends in Optical Technologies" in San Paulo, Brazil on May 9-10, 2012, and Mr. Betti-Berutto will present the GigOptix technology approach to the topic on Thursday, May 10 at 2:20 p.m. local time. The participation in this workshop closely complements the growing interest in GigOptix products for 100G and beyond in the region.Moreover, GigOptix is now shipping production units of the LX8901 and LX8220, a 100G DPSK and a 40G DQPSK TFPSTM Mach Zehnder modulator, respectively, to aerospace and communication customers located in Eastern Europe. "The LX8901 is unique in that it provides a low drive voltage over a very wide optical bandwidth of up to 65GHz," commented Mr. Betti-Berutto, "making it uniquely suited for a number of ultrahigh frequency applications in the field of microwave photonics such as antenna remoting, RF beam steering and ultrahigh frequency signal sampling.""Five years ago, GigOptix's customer base was located in the traditional optical development centers, mainly in North America and Europe," stated Mr. Padraig OMathuna, GigOptix's VP of Marketing. "It is exciting to see the growth in optical communication development as we have extended our reach to the Japanese and Chinese markets over the last couple of years, and now spreading into the new fast growing regions, as the global economy expands. GigOptix is dedicated to supporting the growth of high-speed end-to-end information streaming targeting telecom and datacom optical communications, military, aerospace, ASIC and RF microwave and millimeter wave systems and we look forward to working closely with these highly innovative new companies as they expand into new optical communication markets."About GigOptix, Inc.GigOptix is a leading fabless supplier of semiconductor and optical components that enable high-speed end-to-end information streaming over the network and address emerging high-growth opportunities in the communications, industrial, defense and avionics industries. The Company offers a unique broad portfolio of Drivers, TIAs and TFPSTM optical modulators for 40G and 100G fiber-optic telecommunications and data-communications networks, and high performance MMIC solutions that enable next generation wireless microwave systems up to 90GHz and drivers.
