New Snap-and-Go Micro LGA Integrated Socket Simplifies Board Design and

SAN JOSE, Calif. and SINGAPORE, March 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avago
Technologies (Nasdaq:AVGO) and Amphenol Corporation (NYSE:APH) today announced
a new micro cLGA® integrated socket solution for use with Avago's high
bandwidth MicroPOD^TM optical modules for 40G/100G Ethernet and Optical
Transport Network (OTN) applications.

The new snap-and-go micro cLGA® integrated socket is specifically designed to
interface with the Avago MicroPOD embedded parallel optics transceiver
products. The socket integrates a thermal heat sink with the PCB connector
retention mechanism needed with the Avago MicroPOD electrical interface. More
importantly, this new integrated socket significantly simplifies the board
design and assembly while preserving the industry's smallest socket footprint.

Avago will be showcasing a joint demonstration of its new embedded parallel
optics transceivers using the new snap-and-go micro cLGA integrated sockets
from Amphenol. The demonstration will be in the Avago Booth #1043 at the
OFC/NFOEC 2013 exhibition in Anaheim, California, USA from March 19^th to

"Avago Technologies is excited to have partnered with Amphenol InterCon
Systems to provide this value-added integrated socket solution for use with
the Avago MicroPOD optical modules," said Philip Gadd, vice president and
general manager of the Fiber Optics Product Division at Avago. "We believe
this simple integrated socket solution will enable system companies to easily
design in MicroPOD embedded optics solutions, thereby enabling greater system
bandwidth, higher port density, better system performance and lower total
system costs."

"This collaboration with Avago has been a natural extension of our cLGA
technology: a high density, low profile design that covers every aspect of the
required mechanical specification," said Daniel Barrett, General Manager,
Amphenol InterCon Systems & Mezzanine Products (www.interconsystems.com). "The
snap on heat sink and compression spring is an innovation that really makes
this easy to use. We are excited to be a participant and an enabler for
Avago's technology."
