Paper Abstract

A multi-giga bits circuit-level model of a thin film metal-semiconductor-metal photodetector (MSM PD) for high speed optical receiver (Rx) was obtained using the RF measurement technique and widely used optimization routines in simulation tool such as ADS and SPICE. On-wafer measurement-based modeling technique was employed to exactly characterize DUTs in this paper. On-wafer calibration standard structures such as NiCr 50 Ω of load, short, and open were also fabricated and optimized using laser trimming for exact measurements. The obtained circuit-level model shows good agreement with measured s-parameters and wide eye open up to 20Gbps.
