The implementation of multigigabit-per-second optical communication systems requires many highspeed electronic circuit components that meet stringent performance requirements. In this paper we discuss several important research prototype circuits for fiberoptic transmission, implemented in a baseline AlGaAs/GaAs HBT process. These include a 20-Gb/s decision circuit, 27-Gb/s 1:2 demultiplexer, 30-Gb/s 2:1 multiplexer, 27-Gb /s 4:1 multiplexer, and 11-Gb/s laser driver IC.
