Title: DRIVER WITH DISTRIBUTED ARCHITECTURE
Abstract:
A distributed driver for an optic signal generator has a first amplifier cell with one or more amplifiers configured to receive and amplify an input signal to create a first amplified signal. A second amplifier cell has one or more amplifiers configured to receive and amplify the input signal to create a second amplified signal. A first conductive path and second conductive path connects to the first amplifier cell and the second amplifier cell such that the inductance associated with the first and second conductive path counteracts a capacitance associated with the first amplifier cell and the second amplifier cell. A variable capacitor may be part of the first amplifier cell and/or the second amplifier cell to selectively tune the capacitance of the distributed driver. A distributed bias circuit may be part of the first amplifier cell and/or the second amplifier cell to bias an optic signal transmitter.
