JDSU acquires Circadiant

Test and measurement company JDSU has acquired Circadiant in a bid to expand its product portfolio for the lab and production test market.

Following completion of the acquisition JDSU's optical transport product development capabilities and global distribution channels will be available to further build on Circadiant's market position and broaden the availability of its SFP+, 10GigE and other stressed signal test solutions.

"To capitalize on the economic benefits of developing SFP+ modules, equipment manufacturers require test solutions that evolve accordingly," said Bill Mortimer, vice president and general manager in JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment. "Circadiant has technology and products that not only meet this challenge but complement the JDSU optical transport test portfolio and offer important test capabilities our customers are asking for."

Circadiant standards-based test solutions include the Hydra platform, the industry's first 10 GigE Long Reach Multimode (LRM) and 10 GigE SFP+ test systems, and the OST platform for testing optical components, modules and systems using real-world conditions.

"Testing 10GigE components and systems requires the verification of standards compliance for product development, but also simplified, lower-cost test solutions for manufacturing," said My Chung, CEO of Circadiant. "Providing industry-first test solutions that help meet new and complex challenges associated with SFP+ while also accelerating time-to-market is the differentiator for Circadiant products. We will expand these capabilities as part of JDSU."
