Abstract

This paper presents a 10 Gb/s avalanche- photodiode-based DC-coupled reshaping and reamplifying (2R) burst-mode receiver with on-chip auto-reset generation and multiple data rate support, designed for 10G-GPONs. A short 2R settling time of 75 ns (150 ns for lower-rate operation), a high receiver sensitivity of −31.3 dBm, and a large loud/soft ratio of 25.3 dB are demonstrated at 2.5/5/10 Gb/s in burst-mode operation. Allowing multi-rate operation without external reset signals, it shows great potential for use in emerging symmetric 10G-GPON systems and allows for more flexible future optical access networks.
