Backplane equalization comparison for 10-Gb/s data communication with 0.25-μm SiGe BiCMOS and 0.18-μm CMOS feed-forward equalizers


Two feed-forward equalizers are designed to improve high data rate signal transmission in backplanes. They are fabricated in 0.18-mum CMOS and 0.25-mum SiGe BiCMOS technology respectively. The system specification for the two equalizers is similar and they both address 10-Gb/s data rate transmission. Analog multiplier cells, active delay units and output… (More)
