ADDAPT partner IBM presents 64 Gb/s receiver at leading edge conference

IBM presents the data path of the optical ADDAPT receiver at IEEE International Solid-States Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in February 2017, San Francisco , USA. ISSCC is the foremost global forum for solid-state circuits and systems-on-a-chip. The receiver data path was successfully characterized up to 64 Gb/s optically while just consuming 1.4 pJ/bit.To the best of our knowledge, this is the highest data rate with superior energy efficiency among previously reported CMOS optical RXs.
