Paper Abstract

A monolithically integrated optical receiver in 0.6  μm bipolar complementary metal oxide semiconductor (BiCMOS) technology with 45 channels, each working at a data rate of 3.125  Gbit/s, is described. The optical receiver uses integrated pin photodiodes with a diameter of 90  μm. This parallel optical silicon receiver is capable of operating at 100°C. The parallel optical receiver consumes less than 950 mW in total and each of its channels achieve an optical sensitivity of −17.5  dBm at 850 nm wavelength and a bit error ratio of 10−9.
