Summary: 
This paper reviews analog LSI design issues for optical transmission applications; covering ultra-high-speed transmission over 10 Gb/s, multi-Gb/s systems, optical interconnection systems, and optical access. In the future system development, further advancements in not only optical device technology but also LSI technology are eagerly required. More and more sophisticated circuit design techniques are needed to lower power and operation voltage, increase integration, eliminate external elements and adjustments.
