High Speed Transimpedence Amplifier Design Flow
Transimpedance amplifiers, while conceptually simple, can lend themselves to fairly complex analysis when trying to maximize system performance in terms of noise, bandwidth and pulse-response. The presentation will cover the theoretical design concepts. The theory will then be applied in a SPICE environment to demonstrate the various degrees of freedom available to the engineer to optimize the TIA application. The provided examples will enable the audience to gain an intuitive understanding of the various tradeoffs when designing TIAs.
