A 45-Gb/s BiCMOS decision circuit operating from a 2.5-V supply is reported. The full-rate retiming flip-flop operates from the lowest supply voltage of any silicon-based flip-flop demonstrated to date at this speed. MOS and SiGe heterojunction-bipolar-transistor (HBT) current-mode logic families are compared. Capitalizing on the best features of both families, a true BiCMOS logic topology is presented that allows for operation from lower supply voltages than pure HBT implementations without… CONTINUE READING
