"I am pleased to announce another quarter of solid execution and growth, with Networks up 8.6 percent sequentially on continued share expansion in Optical and strong demand for new catalogue products servicing the broader Networks market," commented Croteau. "Our diversification, coupled with our leading market position in Optical, allowed us to gain market share and grow even in the presence of isolated headwinds," he added.
"Revenue from the Aerospace and Defence market was essentially flat, while Multi-market was up 1.9 percent sequentially. Our catalogue business spanning all end markets increased on the back of our new MMIC-based products.
"Additionally, we continued to advance our GaN initiative and remain on track to ramp volume production programs beginning in the first half of 2017. Lastly, Aerospace and Defense is shaping up to deliver twice the growth rate of our target operating model next quarter and through fiscal 2017."
