—A compact low-power on-chip power-on reset circuit with a brown-out detection capability is presented. With a pico-farad-order on-chip MOS capacitor, a long reset time is achieved. A prototype design implemented in a 0.18-µm CMOS process provides a reset signal with duration of hundreds of milliseconds. The embedded brown-out detection circuit can detect(More)
We present a 12.5-Gb/s monolithically integrated optical receiver with CMOS avalanche photodetector (CMOS-APD) realized in 65-nm CMOS technology. The optical detection bandwidth limitation of CMOS-APD due to the carrier transit time is compensated by underdamped TIA. With this optical receiver, 12.5-Gb/s 850-nm optical data are successfully detected with(More)
