Smart pixel bi-directional optical link using co-located emitters and detectors

Journal Article

A single fiber bi-directional smart pixel link is proposed which uses the colocation of an emitter and detector at each end of the fiber. To realize a fully functional communications link, CMOS analog optoelectronic receiver and transmitter circuits which had digital input/output were fabricated adjacent to the silicon detector. Digital circuitry for multiplexing, data sampling and encoding, and microprocessor interfacing were also included in the silicon integrated circuit.
