A new 10Gbit/s class average-detection-type burst-mode limiting amplifier (LA) IC with SiGe BiCMOS technology has been developed. A burst-mode receiver using this LA IC can realise both a high-speed response and a high tolerance to consecutive identical digits. A settling time of less than 150ns and a sensitivity of -29.8dBm at a bit error rate of 10-3 with a 2 31-1 pseudorandom bit sequence was achieved.
