Circuit technology that achieves a high-bit-rate decision circuit with high input sensitivity for application to future optical communication systems by using AlGaAs/GaAs heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) is reviewed. This technology includes a highly accurate transistor model expressing the overshoot effect and a novel circuit configuration with a wideband preamplifier and an internal buffer. The decision IC operates at up to 12 Gb/s, using AlGaAs/GaAs HBTs with fT of 40 GHz. A good sensitivity of 71 mV p-p and a wide phase margin of 217° at 11 Gb/s is also achieved under error-free conditions (less than 10-9 errors)
