In this letter, we developed, for the first time, 10.3-Gb/s burst-mode 3R receiver incorporating a full automatic gain control optical receiver and 82.5-GS/s over-sampling clock and data recovery (CDR) for 10G-EPON. Burst-mode preamplifier, limiting amplifier, and CDR were newly fabricated on 0.13-??m SiGe bipolar complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor process to completely meet the IEEE802.3av 10G-EPON standards. The 10.3-Gb/s burst-mode 3R receiver successfully achieves the burst receiver sensitivity of -30.1 dBm (at bit error rate (BER) =1 ??10-3) and the dynamic rage more than 24.1 dB (at BER=1 ??10-3) with the assistance of FEC RS(255, 223).
