Resumen

This paper presents a noise-reduction technique to increase the sensitivity of optical receivers with large integrated photodiodes (PD). It consists of manufacturing the PD in several pieces and connecting each piece to a dedicated transimpedance amplifier (TIA). The output signals are combined achieving a better sensitivity and a higher transimpedance.
