Abstract

We present for the first time a high performance APD-based linear burst-mode receiver (BM-RX) with a record wide dynamic range of 31dB. The APD multiplication factor is controlled from burst to burst within 60ns by an on-chip self-generated M-control signal. In the experiment, a total optical budget of 54dB is achieved with a single SOA-based reach extender for 10Gb/s upstream. With electronic dispersion compensation, the APD linear BM-RX with a wide dynamic range relaxes the requirement on optical components and lowers the system cost, especially at the optical network unit (ONU) side.
