Abstract
The limitations of the conventional optical receiver front end circuit configurations are reviewed in the context of the requirements projected for future transmission systems operating at gigabit/s rates. The alternative bootstrapped source follower configuration is proposed, combining low noise with the advantages of tolerance to unbounded line codes, and very wide bandwidths. These have been demonstrated by an experimental design, which has achieved a sensitivity of -28.6 dBm at 2.4 Gbit/s.
