Abstract

This paper describes design techniques for suppressing crosstalk in an optical transceiver module using PLC-hybrid-integration technologies and for achieving burst-mode operation with high sensitivity and wide dynamic range using CMOS-IC technologies. An arrangement that reduces the electrical crosstalk to less than -100 dB was designed using three-dimensional electromagnetic field analysis. The configurations of a newly developed instantaneous-response CMOS LD driver circuit is also described and instantaneous-response CMOS receiver circuit techniques are reviewed. With these techniques, we have succeeded in building optical transceiver modules for ATM-PON systems using PLC-hybrid-integration and inexpensive standard CMOS-IC fabrication processes. Under full-duplex operation at 156 Mb/s, fabricated transceiver modules showed receiver sensitivity of better than -34 dBm and dynamic range of over 28 dB, which satisfy both the class-B and class-C specifications recommended by ITU-T (International Telecommunication Union-Telecommunication standardization sector) G983.1 for the optical transceiver module for an ONU (optical network unit).
