M/A-COM Tech to fight GigOptix lawsuit

M/A-COM Technology Solutions (M/A-COM Tech), a supplier of semiconductor solutions for radio frequency (RF), microwave, and millimeter wave applications, announced that it will vigorously defend a lawsuit filed to them by GigOptix Inc., their recently-acquired subsidiary Optomai Inc., and five Optomai employees who previously worked at GigOptix. The lawsuit, filed on April 26 in Santa Clara County Superior Court, requests unspecified damages and injunctive relief based on as-yet unsubstantiated breach of contract and trade secret misappropriation allegations.

M/A-COM Tech is still reviewing the GigOptix complaint, but is aware of no wrongdoing on the part of M/A-COM Tech, Optomai or any of their employees in this regard, and accordingly believes that the GigOptix allegations are without merit.

"M/A-COM Tech has been pleased at the positive reaction optical networking customers have had to the Optomai acquisition, and remains committed to delivering M/A-COM Tech's full portfolio of 40/100G modulator drivers and transimpedance amplifiers to its customers," said Jihye Whang, director of strategic marketing. "We anticipate a just resolution of this matter through the legal process."

No injunction has been issued by the court hearing the case to date, nor is one expected to be issued.
