View publication


A single-chip 0.13μm CMOS optical transceiver incorporates sixteen 10Gb/s transmitter and receiver channels for a 160Gb/s aggregate bit rate. The transceiver is designed to support chip-to-chip board-level optical data buses and consumes 4.65mW/Gb/s with an area efficiency of 9.4Gb/s/mm2 per link. ©2008 IEEE.
