A procedure to design and characterise high speed bipolar circuits is presented. The design method is improved by using iso base-collector capacitance curves and duty cycles plots in the (IC, Vce) plane. This new optimisation way gives the optimum electrical parameters for each transistor of a bipolar circuit to reach the best trade-off between the switching speed and the power consumption. Furthermore, input signals time jitter is taken into account during simulations. The measurement method is improved by characterising in time domain each part of the measurement set-up. These improvements have enabled the design and characterisation of InP-DHBT D-type flip-flop and demultiplexer circuits. 40 Gbit/s on wafer measurement are presented.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

  • Wu Q.

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
