JDS Uniphase Corp. has acquired the transceiver/transponder business unit of OptronX Inc. This deal extends an existing close collaboration between the companies in optical component level integration and optical module design that has led to the introduction of 10Gbps very short reach (VSR) and short reach (SR1) transponders.

The addition of OptronX transponders extends JDS' transmission module portfolio which already includes all other reaches for telecommunications, a XENPAK module for data communications for 10Gbps data rate applications, and a range of modules for applications at other data rates.

"We believe OptronX's products, IP, and capabilities in very specific areas including packaging, integrated microprocessor technology, microwave design and design processes targeted for shorter reach, metro/access applications make this acquisition a strategic fit for JDS' Transmission Products Group," said Syrus Madavi, president and COO of JDS.
