Abstract

This paper describes a fully differential inductorless temperature independent laser driver for a Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM). The laser driver in this work exhibits robustness in bandwidth and gain across the temperature range 27oC to 135oC. This driver (fabricated using a 130nm CMOS process) can achieve a differential output voltage swing of up to 4Vpp when driving a 50 Ohm Load at speeds of up to 12.5Gb/s across a temperature range 27oC to 135oC.
