This book presents several circuits that are required for the full integration of an optical transmitter in standard CMOS. The main emphasis is placed on high-speed receivers with a bitrate of up to 1 Gb/s. The possibility of including the photodiode in a receiver is investigated and the problems encountered are discussed.Note however that the total current must be provided by the driver. The circuit of the presented driver is designed to drive the LED and its 30 pF loading with no degradation of the 2ns optical rise and fall time (Table 4.1). The low-level quiescentanbsp;...
