    Since the introduction of electronics in nuclear environments more then 3 decades ago, nowadays technologies present ever decreasing feature sizes, while their architectural complexity rapidly evolves in order to meet the increasing number of challenging applications in current and future nuclear facilities. This paper will present a selection of recent applications involving the design and assessment of radiation tolerant fibre optic links and their associated driving electronics for their application up to MGy dose levels in several environments ranging from current nuclear power and reprocessing plants, high energy physics detectors of CERN, to future fusion and Gen IV power plants.
