An efficient baud rate clock and data recovery architecture is applied to a double sampling/integrating front-end receiver for optical interconnects. Receiver performance is analyzed and projected for future technologies. This front-end allows use of a 1:5 demux architecture to achieve 5Gb/s in a 0.25 μm CMOS process. A 5:1 multiplexing transmitter is used to drive VCSELs for optical transmission. The transceiver chip consumes 145mW per link at 5Gb/s with a 2.5V supply.
