Abstract

A 10Gbps fiber optic communication link using cmos photonics is analyzed and demonstrated to be feasible as a low cost, low power, highly integrated solution for next generation networks. The optical transceviever uses a 0.13μm SOI process to implement an integrated TX and RX module capable of driving greater than 2km of Single Mode (SM) fiber. The optical transceiver core operates at 10Gbps with a BER of less than 10exp-15 and a power consumption of 1.25W per channel.
