Abstract:   (807 Views)
In this paper, a low power and wideband Regulated Cascode (RGC)-based Transimpedance Amplifier (TIA) is presented to be used for the short range optical receiver systems. In this structure, input dominant parasitic capacitance is isolated by adding a cascoded inverter amplifier as a fully active feedback network in the booster of an RGC amplifier. As a result, a 6.4 GHz bandwidth is obtained at a lower power consumption. In addition, for eliminating the effect of output parasitic capacitance by resonating with an inductor and widening the bandwidth, an active inductive load is implemented at the output node of the proposed TIA circuit. Therefore, considering two main points of isolation of input parasitic capacitance effect and reduction of load parasitic capacitance effect, bandwidth is increased without using a high amount of power consumption. Based on the results simulated in HSPICE using 90 nm CMOS technology, the proposed TIA can reach the data bit rate of 10Gb/s. In addition, the proposed TIA consumes only 1.6mW of power, and has the gain of 40dBΩ across the 6.4 GHz of bandwidth.
