Title: A 10 Gb/s laser driver in 130 nm CMOS technology for high energy physics applications

Abstract

The GigaBit Laser Driver (GBLD) is a key on-detector component of the GigaBit Transceiver (GBT) system at the transmitter side. We have developed a 10 Gb/s GBLD (GBLD10) in a 130 nm CMOS technology, as part of the design efforts towards the upgrade of the electrical components of the LHC experiments. The GBLD10 is based on the distributed-amplifier (DA) architecture and achieves data rates up to 10 Gb/s. It is capable of driving VCSELs with modulation currents up to 12 mA. Furthermore, a pre-emphasis function has been included in the proposed laser driver in order to compensate for the capacitive load and channel losses.
