— This paper presents two highly integrated receiver circuits fabricated in InP heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) technology operating at up to 2.5 and 7.5 Gb/s, respectively. The first IC is a generic digital receiver circuit with CMOS-compatible outputs. It integrates monolithically an automatic-gain-control amplifier, a digital clock and data(More)
—Digital logic integrated circuits are advancing toward ever higher speeds of operation. Clock frequencies already exceed 1 GHz in some Si CMOS-based consumer products, and even higher speeds are attainable in specialized technologies, such as those based on GaAs, InP, and SiGe bipolar and field-effect transistors. Digital approaches may be used to carry(More)
iii iv Acknowledgements Working for Prof. Rodwell has been a pleasure and a privilege. His ability to answer the most intriguing of questions, with the utmost ease, and often on the spur of the moment, will never cease to amaze me. None of the results in this work would have been possible, if not for him. To him, I owe much more than I can ever express in(More)
