Picometrix LLC, a subsidiary of Advanced Photonix Inc. (NYSE MKT: API), says it has secured a $5.9 million commitment for calendar year 2013 for its 100G and 40G high-speed optical receivers from a prominent telecommunications network equipment customer it would not further identify. Shipments are expected to begin in the company’s fourth quarter of FY2013.

The annual commitment breaks down as $5.2 million for the company’s 100G family of coherent receivers for DP-QPSK modulation and $760K for the company’s 40G receivers for DPSK modulation, both of which are used in long-haul DWDM systems. Picometrix claims to offer the industry’s most complete line of 100G and 40G high-speed optical receivers for both client-side and line-side equipment.

The CR-100A 100G optical receiver uses patented photodiode arrays, an optical photonic integrated circuit, and high-speed linear amplifiers to deliver what the company claims is industry-leading performance. The product comes in the industry standard CCRx multi-source agreement (MSA) form factor, is consistent with the Optical Internetworking Forum’s standards, and supports data rates up to 128 Gbps .

“We are pleased to have received a substantial increase in commitment for 2013 from our lead customer, further solidifying our industry leading position in 100G coherent receivers,” said Robin Risser, COO of API. “We believe that 100G networks are in the very early stage of deployment and we are committed to developing and supplying state of the art and products to support this fast growing market.”
