PINFET hybrid optical receivers with a -3 dB bandwidth of more than 650 MHz have been used in 1.2 Gbit/s systems operating at 1.528 μm wavelength. For a 10-9 BER using an NRZ 215 -1 pseudorandom bit sequence, the receiver sensitivity was -36.5 dBm, which is comparable with the best results obtained using APDs.
