Abstract

In this paper, after discussing some important limitations of the most common circuital configuration that is used for the realization of very low-noise transimpedance amplifiers, we propose and analyze a new circuit topology which allows us to obtain significant advantages as far as equivalent input current noise and bandwidth (BW) are concerned. We present a simple circuit implementation of the new transimpedance amplifier, together with the results of its noise characterization. The comparison between these measurements and those obtained on a conventional transimpedance amplifier with the same transimpedance gain has confirmed that the proposed approach allows us to obtain a lower background noise and a larger BW for the same transimpedance gain.
