Low-Power BiCMOS Optical Receiver With Voltage-Controlled Transimpedance

  title={Low-Power BiCMOS Optical Receiver With Voltage-Controlled Transimpedance},
  author={Niksa Tadic and Horst Zimmermann},
  journal={IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits},
An optical receiver with voltage-controlled transimpedance using a current conveyor and a voltage amplifier monolithically integrated with a PIN photodiode in 0.6 mum BiCMOS technology is presented. The transimpedance is directly proportional to a voltage-controlled resistance, and can be continuously varied by changing its control voltage. Thanks to the mixed current-mode and voltage-mode signal processing, the bandwidth of the optical receiver is virtually independent of the photodiode… CONTINUE READING
