Abstract

The application of charge sensitive amplifier techniques to the design of receivers within smart pixel optoelectronic systems is presented. An example optical input amplifier is given which should provide high sensitivity (±0.3 µA differential), low power consumption (0.6 mW) and small area usage (50 µm × 20 µm) for operation at a conventional CMOS bit rate of 100 Mb/s. The minimum (simulated) optical switching energy is 6 fJ.
