Self-equalizing photodiodes, a hybrid electro-optical approach to tackle bandwidth limitation in high-speed signaling


In this paper we provide the design details of self-equalizing photodetectors which enable higher data rate transmission by improving the overall bandwidth of the bandwidth limited transmission link, through a hybrid electro-optical solution. Two different self-equalizing photodiodes, one having fixed equalization and the other being programmable are presented as proof of concept.
