    how to measure current in the TIA

    For example, I have two feedback TIAs (with photodiode connected). I want choose the one with large input current signal, and the shunt down the other. So, I have to measure the average current through the TIA, by means of measure the received optical power. Does anybody know how to perform...

    Low speed Clock and Data Recovery

    Hi, all I am designing a optical receiver with 2 Mbps. However, I could not find an Clock and data recovery (CDR) in that speed, and also CDR consumes a lot of power. Therefore, I am trying to find a clocked comparator to perform the function of the CDR, since the continues comparator will...

    FPGA receice LVDS signal

    Hi, all I am using Altera Cyclone lV to receive the "LVDS" data from a clock and data recovery (ADN2813) Below is my schematic,. what I did in the PFGA is, let the pin work as "LVDS" or "LVDS bus", like below: I can successfully receive the data. see "y7" and "rx", they are exactly...

    Looking for a Fast LED

    Hi, all I am looking a fast LED for optical communication, the data rate is 50 Mbps. So far, the fastest one I can see is SFH4501 with the rise/fall time of 10 ns. So, my question is 1, can this LED be used for 50Mbps communication? 2, is there some faster LED...

    Single ended to differential in transimpedance amplifier

    Hi, all Does anybody know how to play a single ended to differential conversion in the transimpedance amplifier ? Just like the red circle in the Figure. My input analog signal is 50MHz, amplitude is about very low, about 1mV. So, should I use a balun or fully differential amplifier like...

    ISI in optical link

    Hi, all I get a question for ISI ( inter symbol interference) in optical link. In Razavi'S book,<design of integrated circuits for optical communications> P65, Fig4.2 (b) It says that if the bandwidth of the receiver is 1/4 of the data rate, then voltage decrease due to ISI is roughly...

    Amplifier between TIA and limiting amplifier ?

    Hi, all I am designing a TIA like this, It is single ended, therefore, I think I need a single end to differential amplifier and then connect to the limiting amplifier (differential input). see red circle in the following figure. Does anybody have a suggestion for this amplifier...

    Rise time of photodiode?

    Hi, all Does anybody know when the photodiode datasheet says, a photodiode has a rise time of, i.e, 5ns. It means "transit time is 5ns" or " together with the RC network (50ohm load)", the whole rise time is 5ns? Thanks in advance

    Depletion layer thickness?

    Hi, all Does anybody know how large is depletion layer width for photodiode? For example, for photodiode S3590-06, which has cut-off frequency of 20MHz, and its depletion layer width is 500um. But what about the other photodiode, for example, a photodiode with 100MHz or 50MHz? I know...

    where to find the DC-DC converter for APD ?

    Hi, all I just want to build an avalanche photodiode (APD) based optical receiver. I want to use AD1500-9 from "first sensor". https://www.first-sensor.com/en/datasheet/501208 The question is where to find the DC/DC to bias this APD? The datasheet says that the optimal gain is 50-60...

    why InGaAs photodiode always small than silicon photodiode?

    Hi all Does anybody know why InGaAs photodiode is always small than silicon photodiode? For example, **broken link removed** from hamamatsu, it has diameter of 1mm, and 90pF capacitance. and cut-off frenquency is 35MHz. while for a silicon photodiode, for example, **broken link removed**...

    what does directivity stand for photodiode?

    Hi, all I get a question for "directivity" for the photodiode? Below is the "directivity" for S2506 from hamamatsu. Does it mean when the light is incident to the photodiode Vertical. I= P*R , where I is the current, and R is responsivity , unit in A/W. And when the light...

    How to measure the current through the photodiode

    Hi all For example, I am using a TIA to drive two photodiodes. And I want to know how large of the current generated through each photodiode, and this measurement circuit will not have a effect on the TIA/photodiode pair. I know there is some kind of TIA, which can measure the current, for...

    Photodiode package choose

    Hi, all I have two questions about the photodiode package. 1, some of the photodiodes are packaged in plastic, for example **broken link removed**in T1 or BPV10 in T-1¾. what does this "arch“ sharp package for? provide a wider angle and a optical gain? I put my understanding in the...

    How to compare multiple voltages ( II )

    I try to simplify my questions in the last thread , then I realized I failed... Here is my original question.... I try to build a photodiode array which contains 4 photodiodes. Each photodiode is connected with its own TIA (transimpedance amplifier), and then connected to LA (Limiting...

    how to compare multiple voltages?

    Hi, all I get several (4-16) DC output voltages, all ranging from 0-3.3v. and I want to compared all these DC, and choose the highest one as the input signal of my next stage. what kind of devices should I choose? I searched for "multiple voltage comparator" but found nothing. Thanks

    How can I design a Return to Zero optical link

    Hi, all I want design a Return to Zero optical link with variable duty cycle. I started it from 50% duty cycle. Following is my block diagram. Basically, I use a and gate to generate 50% duty cycle Return to Zero(RZ) signal and use D flip flop to recover the signal to...

    is there some RZ-to-NRZ convertor ?

    Hi , all I can find NRZ-to-RZ Converter, for example, HMC706LC3C or **broken link removed** but is there some RZ-to-NRZ convertor ? or I have to use a D flip-flop to design by myself ? Thanks

    is there some IC can change the signal from Non-return-to-Zero to Return-to-Zero ?

    Of course I can use "And gate" to get a 50% return to zero data, but i want to change to duty cycle of output data from 10-50%, So, is there some IC can do this job ?

    how to delay the signal ?

    Hi, all the input is 50MHz clock signal. I want to delay this clock signal from 1n- 10ns Of course, I can use two Inverter to Achieve this delay, but the delay time is not controlled. but is there some IC, I can controlled the delay ???
