A bandwidth adjustable integrated optical receiver having an on-chip silicon avalanche photodetector is realized with standard 0.25-μm silicon-germanium bipolar complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor technology for optical interconnect applications. With the controllable capacitive degeneration technique, the optical receiver bandwidth can be adjusted for the best bit error rate performance.
