FEC-free 60-Gb/s silicon photonic link using SiGe-driver ICs hybrid-integrated with photonics-enabled CMOS

View publication


We report an error-free 60-Gb/s link driven by SiGe ICs using a segmented-electrode Mach Zehnder modulator with optical-domain feed-forward equalization and a high-bandwidth Ge photodetector, both integrated in a commercial photonics-enabled CMOS process.
