This paper presents a 2-40 Gb/s dual-mode wireline transmitter supporting the four-level pulse amplitude modulation (PAM4) and non-return-to-zero (NRZ) modulation with a multiplexer (MUX)-based two-tap feed-forward equalizer (FFE). An edge-acceleration technique is proposed for the 4:1 MUX to increase the bandwidth. By utilizing a dedicated cascode current source, the output swing can achieve 900 mV with a level deviation of only 0.12% for PAM4. Fabricated in a 65-nm CMOS process, the transmitter consumes 117 mW and 89 mW at 40 Gb/s in PAM4 and NRZ at 1.2 V supply. © 2018, Institute of Electronics Engineers of Korea. All rights reserved.
