Abstract.  A monolithically integrated optical receiver in 0.6μm bipolar complementary metal oxide semiconductor (BiCMOS) technology with 45 channels, each working at a data rate of 3.125Gbit/s, is described. The optical receiver uses integrated pin photodiodes with a diameter of 90μm. This parallel optical silicon receiver is capable of operating at 100°C. The parallel optical receiver consumes less than 950 mW in total and each of its channels achieve an optical sensitivity of 17.5dBm at 850 nm wavelength and a bit error ratio of 109.
