GigOptix appoints senior photonic packaging and integration architect for optical and RF transceiver modules

GigOptix Inc of San Jose, CA, USA (a fabless supplier of analog semiconductor and optical components enabling high-speed end-to-end information streaming over optical fiber and wireless networks) has appointed photonics integration veteran Giovanni Delrosso to the newly created role of senior photonic packaging and integration architect. Based at GigOptix’s subsidiary GigOptix GmbH in Berlin, Germany, Delrosso will be responsible for leadership of optical and RF advanced packaging and integration initiatives across the organization.

“Giovanni brings nearly 30 years of photonics packaging and integration experience to GigOptix,” says Dr Raluca Dinu, general manager & VP of the Optics and RF product line. “Giovanni will lead the advanced optical integration initiatives we have in place and will help us accelerate our integration of next-generation optical transceivers.”

Prior to joining GigOptix, Delrosso held senior packaging technology adviser and product development positions at COGO Optronics in Berlin, where he led packaging design efforts for miniaturized 100Gbps transmit optical sub-assembly (TOSA) modules. Delrosso also worked in R&D project management roles at Pirelli Labs and Cisco Systems, with a focus on optoelectronic packaging technologies. He is also a visiting researcher at the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute in Berlin for GigOptix’ terabyte photonic module developments.

Since 1989, Delrosso has volunteered for IMAPS and IEEE-CPMT societies. He held the position of president of IMAPS Europe and European Liaison Committee from 2011 to 2013, and has also co-authored several patents and technical papers.
