Paper Abstract

A new low-voltage high-speed CMOS fully-differential adaptive equalizer based on the spectrum-balancing technique is presented. It was designed to compensate the strong attenuation of the transmitted signal through a 50-m length SI-POF. The proposed equalizer, which targets a 2.5 Gb/s transmission for a simple NRZ modulation, was designed in a standard 0.18-μm CMOS process and uses a 1-V supply voltage with a total power consumption below 17.3 mW. An enhancement in the signal BW from 100 MHz to 1.8 GHz for a 50-m POF length is achieved.
