Zecal to Supply C-COR.net with Ceramic Circuitry

October 18, 2000
Zecal Technology, LLC, owned by Heartland Technology and LZ Partners, has entered into an agreement with C-COR.net to supply C-COR.net with Zecal's latest ceramic circuit technology. The estimated value of the agreement is $2.3 million annually. Under the multi-year agreement, Zecal will design and manufacture circuitry for use in C-COR.net's next generation of FlexNet(R) trunk and bridger amplifiers and fiber optic receivers. When introduced, these enhanced C-COR.net products will offer superior distortion and performance while reducing operating power. "This contract represents a significant leap forward, not only for our company, but also for broadband networking and market acceptance of ceramic circuit technology," said Jack Smith, Zecal's president and chief executive officer. "The selection of our products and support capabilities by C-COR.net, a broadband leader with high-quality standards, reaffirms both the compelling performance benefits of ceramic circuitry and Zecal's ability to deliver them in C-COR.net's equipment."
