Stepped Gain Photodiode Amplifier

Stepped Gain Photodiode Amplifier

At low signal levels, the circuit has a high 100kΩ transimpedance gain, but at high signal levels the circuit automatically and smoothly changes to a low 3.1kΩ gain. The beneit of a stepped gain approach is that it maximizes dynamic range.
