A high-linearity optical receiver with background-light-AGC for high PAPR signals is presented. The integrated BiCMOS optical receiver consists of a TIA with AGC, a linear amplifier and a line driver. The receiver THD is 1.7 and the third-order intermodulation is 50dBc at 20MHz and at an input optical power of -3.5dBm. The third-order intermodulation decreases to 40dBc at 100MHz.
