Title: A low power low noise amplifier for a 128 channel detector read-out chip

Abstract

This paper describes the design of a low power, low noise CMOS amplifier. The amplifier was designed using the folded cascade configuration and was implemented on a 3 ..mu..m double polysilicon process. The amplifier is part of a 128 channel charge amplifier array chip for use in the read-out of radiation detectors with many channels. Aspects of the amplifier design such as bandwidth, pulse response, and noise are discussed and the effects of individual transistors are shown thereby relating circuit performance to process parameters; circuit test results are presented and radiation test results are included.
