About this book

Introduction

While the throughput of microprocessor systems tends to increase as a result of ongoing technology scaling and the advent of multi-core systems, the off-chip I/O communication bandwidth emerges as one of the potential bottlenecks that limit overall performance. In order to alleviate the communication speed constraints, optical data communication interfaces move ever closer to the processor core. It is widely expected that future generation digital systems will increasingly rely on chip-to-chip and board-to-board optical data communications for higher bandwidth and better noise immunity.

This book focuses on optical communications for short and very short distance applications and discusses the monolithic integration of optical receivers with processing elements in standard CMOS technologies. CMOS Multi-Channel Single-Chip Receivers for Multi-Gigabit Optical Data Communications provides the reader with the necessary background knowledge to fully understand the trade-offs in short-distance communication receiver design and presents the key issues to be addressed in the development of such receivers in CMOS technologies. Moreover, novel design approaches are presented. A system-level design methodology allows for the impact analysis of different block specifications and system-wide design optimization. Statistical models are used for design space exploration in the scope of jitter tolerance analysis of clock recovery circuits.

CMOS Multi-Channel Single-Chip Receivers for Multi-Gigabit Optical Data Communications is required reading for practicing engineers and researchers in the field of short-distance optical communications and optical CMOS receiver design.
