As the availability of commercial GaAs integrated circuits increases, gigabit optical fiber transmission systems will soon be a reality. Since commercially available lasers and PIN diodes already operate well over a gigabit, the only limiting factor to commercially feasible high data rate systems are the high speed circuits required in the transmitters and receivers. The circuits that require ultra high speed are shown in Figure 1. Microwave Semiconductor Corp. has recently announced a fiber optic chip set that will perform each function shown in Figure 1, excluding the laser and PIN diode. This paper will describe two of the new GaAs integrated circuits, the laser driver and the transimpedance receiver circuit, that operate above a gigahertz.
