Design of a Silicon Bipolar Track&Hold IC for 1GSample/s and 10 bit Linearity over the full Nyquist Band
This chapter discusses the design of a silicon bipolar Track&Hold IC achieving a linearity of 10 effective bits over the full Nyquist band for sampling frequencies up to 1 GSample/s. Suitable circuit techniques which were implemented to assure this performance will be presented in detail, as well as the simulation techniques that were applied throughout the design process. We will complete this chapter with a presentation of the measurement setup and the measured performance characteristics.
