1 April 1991 Optical receivers in ECL for 1GHz parallel links
Author Affiliations +
An optical receiver array containing 8 channels for optical interconnections is implemented in a silicon 1tm bipolar technology. It operates up to lGbit/s with an overall delay of 1. 4ns between optical signal input and full ECL level output. The fully DC-coupled channels need a photocurrent of 7tA to switch the logical level. Chip area and power consumption per channel correspond to 4 regular ECL gates.
