10 April 1997 High-speed HBT technologies and circuits for optical communication

Optical networks and their requirement for ever-increasing data rates provide a continuing challenge for electronic circuits. Here we review a number of circuits, implemented in heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs), and technologies that have been developed for 40 Gbit/s optical interconnection. These approaches include, multielement arrays for freespace, or guided transmission, wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) of several channels onto different wavelengths, and circuits that attempt to realized 40 Gbit/sec modulation rates directly by time division multiplexing (TDM). The circuit design challenges presented by these various approaches to 40 Gbit transmission are covered as well.
