The receiver sensitivity will depend ultimately on the front-end noise. Results are presented for receivers based on InP/InGaAs HBTs as used in either 1 GB/s or 10 GB/s demonstration units. The small-signal parameters for these transistors are shown}, keywords = {bipolar integrated circuits;gallium arsenide;heterojunction bipolar transistors;III-V semiconductors;indium compounds;integrated circuit noise;integrated optoelectronics;optical receivers;}, URL = {http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/ICIPRM.1993.380595}, author = { Liu, Q.Z. and Pulfrey, D.L.} }
