Abstract

Low cost high performance optoelectronic components are critical for the success of fiber optic data links in applications such as chip-to-chip, board-to-board, or station-to-station interconnects. We present the current status of low-cost short wavelength (0.85 μm) GaAs MSM/MESFET (metal-semiconductor- metal/metal semiconductor field effect transistor) monolithic opto-electronic integrated circuit (OEIC) receiver arrays. Four- channel OEIC receiver arrays have been designed, fabricated and tested. BERs of less than 10-9 with 300 mV differential output voltages have been achieved at a bit-rate of 1 Gb/s with a -16 dBm 27-1 pseudo-random bit sequence (PRBS) input optical signal.
