The design of a 155Mb/s-4.25Gb/s laser driver in SiGe BiCMOS is described. A large output voltage compliance range that allows DC coupling to the laser diode is achieved with a translinear pseudodifferential output driver. Active back-termination is provided at the modulation output pins. Careful design of the level shift stage affords low deterministic(More)
This paper describes the design methodology, simulation, and tools used to design a 4.25 Gb/s high output swing laser driver (LD) and the electrical to optical interface from the LD to the laser diode. The quality of the optical output of a fiber optic communication channel is mainly determined by the LD and the electrical interface from the LD to the laser(More)
