A 1.25-gb/s burst-mode receiver for GPON applications

This paper presents a 1.25-Gb/s burst-mode receiver (BMRx) for upstream transmission over gigabit passive optical networks (G-PONs). The dc-coupled receiver uses a unique arrangement of three limiting amplifiers to convert the bursty input signal to a current mode logic output signal while rejecting the dc offset from a preceding transimpedance amplifier… CONTINUE READING
