Optical front end
Opto Speed has developed an Optical Front End, which combines a 40Gbit/s photodiode with electronic transimpedance and postamplifiers with differential output monolithically integrated on a single InP chip. The integrated Optical Front End is one of the first commercially available monolithically integrated optical components and is currently being tested by several potential customers.
