Abstract

We describe an advanced InP-InGaAs-based technology for the monolithic integration of pin-photodiodes and SHBT-transistors. Both devices are processed using the same epitaxial grown layer structure. Employing this technology, we have designed and fabricated two photoreceivers achieving transimpedance gains of 170 /380 and optical/electrical bandwidths of 50 GHz/34 GHz. To the best of our knowledge, this is the highest bandwidth of any heterojunction bipolar transitor (HBT)-based photoreceiver optoelectronic integrated circuit (OEIC) published to date. We even predict a bandwidth of 60 GHz for the same circuit topology by a simple reduction of the photodiode diameter and an adjustment of the feedback resistor value.
