Abstract: Feasibility study for the development of a Silicon 32x32 crosspoint switch for fibre optic LAN.
We built an IC array of 8 preamplifiers on SiGe HBT, with individual bandwidths exceeding 3 GHz and investigated crosstalk coupling. We also developed a fully integrated 4x4 switch for 2.5 Gbit/s per channel, currently under test.

Abstract: Development of a viable strained Si and SiGe base CMOS technology. Our role was to evaluate the potential of HMOS for RF circuit design by designing process tolerant circuits for fabrication within the project . Emphasis on bandpass sampling downconverter /mixers, and performance limitations.
