Low Noise, Low Power Photodiode Amplifier With DC Precision

Low Noise, Low Power Photodiode Amplifier With DC Precision

Instead of simply grounding the LT6202 noninverting input, an LTC2050 drives it (and therefore the source) exactly to where it needs to be for zero JFET gate voltage. Output offset is 200µV and output noise is 2mVP-P measured in a 20MHz bandwidth.




LTspice® software is a powerful, fast and free simulation tool, schematic capture and waveform viewer with enhancements and models for improving the simulation of switching regulators. Click here to download LTspice

To launch a ready to run LTspice demonstration circuit for this part:

  • Step 1: If you have not installed LTspice on this computer, download and install LTspice
  • Step 2: Once LTspice is installed, click on the link(s) below to launch the simulation
  • Step 3: If LTspice does not automatically open after clicking the link above, you can instead run the simulation by right clicking on the link and selecting "Save Target As." After saving the file to your computer, start LTspice and open the demonstration circuit by selecting 'Open' from the 'File' menu
