Paper Abstract

A low power 1 X 12 array of VCSEL driver that each runs at 1.32 Gbps has been designed and fabricated in 0.25 micrometers CMOS. The transmitter array operates with minimal crosstalk, and with edge times as low as 59 ps, and power consumption less than 5mW per transmitter. Zero-bias vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers are considered, and the trade-off between speed and power consumption with be discussed. The edge time for this transmitter can be adjusted with a novel speed-up circuit. The application of this speed-up circuit will be discussed for short-haul optical links that uses multimode fibers. The drivers have been successfully integrate on a single chip with temperature compensation circuits, clock generation phase-lock loop (PLL), serializing and 8B10B encoding, and deserializer and 8B10B decoding circuits, and a 1 X 12 receiver post-amplifier array.
