In this article, the large-signal, small-signal, and noise performance of the Cherry-Hooper amplifier with emitter-follower feedback are analyzed from a design perspective. A method for choosing the component values to obtain a low group delay distortion or Bessel transfer function is given. The design theory is illustrated with an implementation of the circuit in a 47-GHz SiGe process. The amplifier has 19.7-dB gain, 13.7-GHz bandwidth, and /spl plusmn/10-ps group delay distortion.
