Optical interconnections are required in realizing maximum performance in very high speed IC's and systems. Very high speed operation of GaAs photoconductive detectors together with their low operation voltage makes them attractive for receivers in high speed optical interconnections. Distributed coupling is a simple and quick method for connecting fibers with the detectors, suitable for the present application as well. In order to meet the need for high speed optoelectronic IC's for interconnections in very high speed IC's and systems, integrated photoconductive detector/FET GaAs receivers with distributed coupling to optical fibers were developed.
