The N over N cascode push-pull laser driver is demonstrated at 20Gbit/s with IBM 130nm technology. Elec-optical measurement of laser driver integrated with Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM) is also presented. This laser driver(More)
A voltage mode modulator driver is proposed in the TSMC 65nm low power CMOS process. In the electrical testing, the driver itself can achieve a bit rate of 40Gb/s with the single-ended output swing of 1.65V. Unlike equivalent CML modulator drivers, when the proposed driver is integrated with the silicon photonic MZM, it does not require an additional(More)
—This paper describes a fully differential inductor-less temperature independent laser driver for a Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM). The laser driver in this work exhibits ro-bustness in bandwidth and gain across the temperature range 27 o C to 135 o C. This driver (fabricated using a 130nm CMOS process) can achieve a differential output voltage swing of up to(More)
