A voltage-controlled oscillator includes two first inductors having a common node, two varactors respectively coupled to the first inductors, a cross-connected pair coupled to the first inductors, and a reversely tunable source degeneration module coupled to the cross-connected pair. The reversely tunable source degeneration module cooperates with the cross-connected pair to form a negative equivalent capacitance seen into the cross-connected pair from the common node of cross-connected pair and each first inductor. An oscillatory signal pair is provided at the first terminals of the first and second transistors.

This work presents a small-signal analysis for investigating the transmission performance of optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing signals with a directly modulated DFB laser (DML). The analysis shows the positive chirp of DMLs can intensify power fading after transmission with positive dispersion and provide power gain instead with negative dispersion. The power of subcarrier-to-subcarrier intermixing interference after squarelaw direct detection, however, is independent on the sign of dispersion. © 2011 Optical Society of America.

A mixer includes a transconductance unit, a gain boost unit, a mixing module and a buffer. The transconductance unit converts a differential input voltage signal pair into a differential input current signal pair. The gain boost unit generates an auxiliary current signal pair that constitutes a portion of the differential input current signal pair. The mixing module mixes a remaining portion of the differential input current signal pair with a differential oscillatory voltage signal pair to generate a differential mixed voltage signal pair. The buffer performs buffering on the differential mixed voltage signal pair.
