LONDON Phyworks, the designer of physical layer ICs for optical communication modules, has relocated to larger offices in Bristol’s city centre.
The five year-old company says the move is prompted by the need for larger design facilities and laboratory space with expansion capabilities to support a growing customer base.
The move was also driven by the need to provide facilities for the new design engineers Phyworks is currently recruiting for developing projects in the company’s core electronic dispersion compensation technology, currently being deployed in enterprise and metropolitan networks.
“We are now recruiting analogue design engineers to support the company’s growth, we feel a city centre location will be really attractive to new employees,” said Stephen King, Phyworks’ CEO.
Phyworks has recently gained market share in the developing fiber-to-the x (FTTx) market. Its transceivers and transimpedance amplifiers (TIAs) are used in both the Gigabit and Gigabit Ethernet passive optical network (GPON and GEPON) markets, and are now ramping in production.
