In order to replace existing TDM-PON (TDM-Passive Optical Network) systems by new PON (10G-PON) systems providing 10Gbit/s access in a flexible manner, it is necessary to realize loss budgets that are not less than those of existing PON systems. In this paper, we propose a new 10Gbit/s APD burst-mode receiver, which attains the sensitivity of -24.SdBm and the dynamic range of 17.8 dB. When forward error correction (FEC) is employed, the corresponding values are -29.8dBm and 22.8dB; the resulting loss budget of 29 dB satisfies the requirement for new PON systems.
