This paper reviews electro-optic effect devices (SEEDs). Included in this are the resistive and photodiode biased devices and a discussion of the symmetric SEED. We describe the performance of symmetric SEEDs and the extension of these devices to Logic SEEDs that can be custom designed to perform complex logic functions such as photonic switching nodes and optical shift registers. Lastly, we review recent progress in the integration of SEEDs and GaAs metal-semiconductor field effect transistors (MESFETs).
