Examples of Optoelectronic Integrated Circuits

  • Horst Zimmermann
Part of the Springer Series in Photonics book series (PHOTONICS, volume 3)


In this chapter the full variety of receiver OEICs in digital and analog techniques will be introduced. Examples of optical receivers range from low-power synchronous digital circuits for massively parallel optical interconnects and three-dimensional optical memories to Gb/s fiber receivers. Low-offset analog OEICs for two-dimensional optical memory systems like CD-ROM and digital-versatile-disk (DVD) will be described as well as image sensors. Hybrid integrated laser drivers are included as examples of optical emitters.
