This paper presents design, fabrication and testing of high speed laser diode transmitter and receiver modules capable of handling data rates of 1GB/s. The circuits have been fabricated using hybrid thick film process to incorporate high power densities,yield and reduced parasitics.Both transmitter and receiver operate at 1300nm wavelength, and can process ECL signals with a single 5V supply.Computer aided design and surface mount techniques have been employed for the development of these circuits, which have demonstrated excellent stability and reliable performance.
