Oclaro Cuts Guidance Citing Challenging Conditions and Slower 40/100G Take-up


Oclaro trimmed its financial guidance citing dontinued challenging market conditions in the segments of the optical communications space.  The company now expects revenue of approximately $149 million in its first fiscal quarter ending September 29, 2012, compared to the low end of its guidance of $154 million, previously issued on July 31, 2012

Oclaro also cited slower than expected recovery of customer share of certain products to pre-flood levels, including certain data communications products; and slower than expected ramp of new products, in particular certain customer-qualified new 40G and 100G products.

"We are disappointed that the revenues for the first quarter of our 2013 fiscal year are below guidance," said Alain Couder, Chairman and CEO of Oclaro. "Following the merger, our integration activities are on track to execute our synergies, and our customer relationships are strong. We expect these factors to strengthen our future performance and expect revenues to be up in the December quarter."

  • Oclaro and Opnext completed their merger on July 23, 2012, creating a leader in key components for core optical networking for long-haul, regional and metro DWDM, and positioned to become a leader in data communications for enterprises and data centers, as well as industrial and consumer laser diodes market.
  • Oclaro was formed in 2009 through the merger of Bookham and Avanex Corporation, both suppliers of optical networking components. Its product set includes tunable lasers, modulators, dispersion compensation components, wavelength selective switches, modules and sub-systems. In mid-2009, the company acquired the Newport Spectra Physics high power laser diodes business. 
  • Opnext was established in September 2000 from the spinoff of Hitachi's Fiber Optic Components Business Unit. The new company was funded by the Clarity Group and Marubeni Group. The Opnext product line includes transceivers, pluggable modules (XENPAK, X2/XPAK, XFP, SFP+, SFP), TOSA/ROSA, and communications laser diodes and photodiodes; 40G muxponders, transponders, regenerators, tunable dispersion compensators, PMD compensators, and shelf controllers; and red laser diodes and infrared laser diodes.
  • Financially, the merger is expected to have a positive impact on gross margins and on operating margin. Both companies have been moving to an outsourcing model. Oclaro recently signed a definitive agreement to transition its internal assembly and test to Venture in Malaysia. On a non-flood basis, about 30% to 35% of Oclaro’s, and about 40% to 45% of Opnext’s assembly and test are with Fabrinet.

GigOptix Samples Next Gen Transimpedance Amplifier for 100G/400G Coherent

GigOptix has begun sampling its next generation GX3222B dual channel Linear Transimpedance Amplifier (TIA) designed for use in 100 Gbps DWDM optical receivers.


The device is a high performance, silicon germanium, dual channel 32Gbaud linear TIA with adjustable bandwidth control that enables its use in receiver modules in a number of fiber optic transmission systems such as current generation 100 Gbps DP‐QPSK optical systems in addition to future 400 Gbps optical systems.

The GX3222B is designed for use in 100G and beyond coherent optical receivers and includes critical functions such as high DC current cancellation, low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), linear gain over a high dynamic range and low power consumption.

Avago Releases High-Gain Linear Power Amplifier for LTE

Avago Technologies introduced a high-gain, high-linearity power amplifier for high-data-rate applications found in 700-800 MHz cellular infrastructure equipment. The new MGA-43128 amplifier features low distortion and high power added efficiency (PAE) that help reduce power consumption. RF input is fully matched while the output includes integrated pre-match circuitry for matching and application simplicity. An integrated bypass switch controlled attenuator provides up to 18.0 dB attenuation, and the device also has a temperature-compensated power detector on chip. Applications include LTE AP, CPE, and Picocell equipment and can also serve as a base station driver amplifier.
