This paper explores the potential of CMOS technology for circuits operating at tens of gigahertz in an optical communications environment. An overview of modern CMOS processes is given and a generic optical system illustrating integration challenges is studied. The design of high-speed building blocks such as amplifiers, oscillators, and phase detectors is also described.
