In this paper a Track-and-Hold amplifier (THA), designed in a low cost 0.35μm SiGe 60GHz technology, suitable for SDR applications, is presented. With the implementation of a novel input buffer, the circuit shows a 3dB bandwidth of 7GHz and a distortion better than 50dB up to, about, that frequency during Track phase. Simulations show a THD better than 50dB up to a frequency of 5.77GHz at 2GS/s and a "reconstructed" 3dB full power bandwidth (FPBW) of 5.86GHz. The circuit draws about 220mA from 3.3V supply, considering all the sampling stage, the output buffer and clock driver.

Abstract

In this paper a Track-and-Hold amplifier (THA), designed in a low cost 0.35μm SiGe 60GHz technology, suitable for SDR applications, is presented. With the implementation of a novel input buffer, the circuit shows a 3dB bandwidth of 7GHz and a distortion better than 50dB up to, about, that frequency during Track phase. Simulations show a THD better than 50dB up to a frequency of 5.77GHz at 2GS/s and a "reconstructed" 3dB full power bandwidth (FPBW) of 5.86GHz. The circuit draws about 220mA from 3.3V supply, considering all the sampling stage, the output buffer and clock driver.
