A silicon-rich silicon oxide (SRSO)-based light emitting diode (LED) is integrated with a surrounding bipolar driver transistor using a standard bipolar process which was modified to include five additional lithography levels and several processing steps. The driver transistor is connected in a common-emitter configuration and modulates light emission by amplifying a small base input signal and controlling current flow through the LED. The circular design is area-efficient and scalable, provides effective electrical isolation and demonstrates a truly integrated structure.
