Summary: 
The authors report on a 22-Gbit/s static decision IC fabricated with 0. 12-µm GaAs MESFETs. The key to attaining high-speed decision IC is the employment of a novel high-speed D-type flip-flop (D-FF). The D-FF succeeds in faster operation through the simplification of the circuitry and the reduction of the transition time of the output voltages.
