Paper Abstract

This paper describes the use of an Enhancement-Depletion Mode process in Low Noise applications as well as high speed interfacing for optical networks. The same technology has also been used for highly linear, very low noise, LNAs at L- band, in down converters as well as drivers for 10 Gb/s interfaces, hence is a `Unified' process capable of performing well in many different applications. The technology will be briefly described, some of the advantages of the E-mode FET over the D-mode FET discussed and examples of circuits are presented.
