A computer program was developed to aid the design of fibre optic receiver preamplifiers for low/medium bit rate systems. The program calculates the preamplifier feedback resistance and, in the case of avalanche photodiode, the optimum multiplication factor. The program can work with any of the three basic receiver types viz: straightforward termination, high impedance integrating type and the transimpedance type. It can be used to understand the effects of various system parameters on the receiver sensitivity without having to actually construct the circuits.
