The paper describes a Track and Hold Amplifier (THA) suitable for RF sampling and Software Defined Radio receivers where high speed and high resolution are required. The reported THA is based on two main techniques: one for minimizing the differential droop rate and one for improving the HD3 in track mode. Measurements results show that the adopted… CONTINUE READING
