Aeluros Inc was a semiconductor company developing integrated circuits for wireline communications - for Ethernet operating at 10 Gigabits per second. The company was founded in 2001 ,[1] and produced physical layer ICs used in 10GE line cards and optical modules (such as XENPAK, SFP, XFP).

Aeluros was the first to produce a XAUI transceiver dissipating less than 1 Watt of power, [2] [3] a transceiver that can drive directly a 10 Gbit/s VCSEL, [4] and a transceiver with integrated Electronic Dispersion Compensation for 10GE using Multi-mode optical fiber. [5]

Aeluros merged with NetLogic Microsystems in October 2007 in a deal exceeding $70M.[6] Netlogic Microsystems was subsequently acquired by Broadcom in February 2012 for $3.7B.
