Characterization of Equalized 10-Gb/s Multimode Fibre LAN Links Using Transverse 7-Tap Analog FIR Filter in 0.13 mu m CMOS

BER and ISI measurements of over 600 equalized 300-m long 10-Gb/s MMF links using a 7-tap analogue-FIR filter show offset launch is preferred for OM1 fibres, while centre launch is preferred for OM3 fibres.
